Rock Climbing Photo: Staying Warm on South Face of Washington Column
Anyone been upto the Loaf or Woodfords in the last week? Hike in or skins needed? Is the rock pretty much dry? I'll be up in Tahoe this weekend and I'm hoping to get on some rock since powder seems to be out of the question...

Thanks!

Was at Sugarloaf Friday, sunny and 65...and no snowshoes or skins even close to necessary. You walk through 20' of 2" deep packed snow.

Went to Woodfords yesterday, sunny and near 50 at the base of the Fortress and in the 2nd Alcove. There will be some slight snow wallowing down low, not bad though. Take a more climber's slight left approach straight up the hill from the parking lot (should be footprints) rather than the standard climbers' left up that dirt ridge to avoid some of the snow, but there will be some wallowing. Not anything requiring snowshoes or skins, though.

Rock at both Woodfords and Sugarloaf is dry.

Get out there and enjoy!

Completely game on. All cracks were dry at both places, even chimneys and wide things. Weston L
