On Red Wall at Smith

I can't give an update now (I'm in Texas these days), but I love how my question from January turned into an ongoing thread on Tahquitz conditions.

Funny and true. Stay tuned, I'll give you an update in a couple of months.

Keller Peak climb

the forecast is for sun and 76F so I think it 'll be pretty good.

We are heading up there this sunday too, so we might bump into each other.

Conditions are good. Just a little snow on the ground, North Face still has some snow, everything else is dry.

oh

Can't people just check the weather? Where is the sense of adventure?

I think people are more concerned about the approach, especially after the last storm. I was up there Sunday morning and did Fingertrip and there was no problem getting to the base of the south facing climbs. North side was still looking wet though.

which brings us to robin's thoughts on adventure, whom i agree with on this subject. oh, the north side is a bad place to be. snowy, wet, and lonely. great climbing though...

I was just up at Suicide this weekend, minimal snow up at Suicide, North area (flower of high rank) still had some snow in the gully, weeping wall was weeping, as well as the walls headed back around north.

From what I could see from Suicide, Tahquitz has snow around whodunit and at the base of the trough. Spotty everywhere else, and on the north side, there seemed to be patches up a few pitches. All in all clear, but I wasnt able to get close enough to see any of the runoff spots.

Hope this helps!

Hoping to get on vampire and green arch this weekend... I heard rock fall this year is especially bad; be careful up there!

I have only been to Tahquitz once and didn't climb so I don't know where the runoff areas are. Is the Long Climb likely to stay wet longer or should it be dried up a week from saturday?

.

Was there this past Saturday and climbed Whodonit. There were only a couple of very brief (15-30ft) spots to cross shallow snow on the climbers trail. There was a bit of snow at the bottom of the route, but not too bad. Midway up 2nd pitch to some ways above the chimney in the 3rd pitch was quite wet. Still very doable, but definitely harder than when dry. All-in-all an enjoyable day, though. Hope this helps.

Since all of you love weather updates. Here it is.

It has rained for the last couple days with some snow at night. Also looks like it is going to snow/rain for half of today.

Climbing does not look good for the weekend probably best to get some of your last days in at j tree for the season.

The thread says "Tahquitz Conditions?", if you don't wanna hear about the conditions/weather then why do you follow and post in this thread?

Unfortunately your punctuation is not of 4th grade caliber, that alone makes any context conveying intent difficult to interpret.

Climbed The Vampire yesterday. Was a bit windy and cold, and a little damp, but not terrible. Beautiful place and good weather. Caught a few (maybe 1 or 2) raindrops on the third pitch, but all in all, fantastic day! We waited in line at the bottom of the climb for almost an hour with a party of 3 ahead of us. Rock seemed damp and friction was low, but hey, the climb may have been harder which will make the next go around easier.

Bat crack on pitch one was moist in the back, which added to the excitement/made it a little slippery. Chalk helped loads.

There was still some snow at the bottom of the traverse pitch (before the real start), but that was the only snow I saw and it didn't affect the climb.
