Usually awesome. Thunderstorms are usually not prevalent until later in the year and the snow, for the most part, should be melted out. There is always the south side for cold mornings.

The thing about the tower is you can climb in the sun or you can climb in the shade every day of the year. As long as it isn't too wet, or too cold, you are fine. April can be awesome, as it isn't too hot yet, nor usually too cold. That being said, the week that you are there, maybe a freak last season storm will roll through and it will be 25 and snowing..Who knows? May is usually one of the better months of the year, but April is close enough!

Definitely appreciate the responses! If you could only do one route while you're there, any preferences? (Below 5.11)

If only one route, what is your goal? The top or the route?

5.9 would be assembly line or Solar
10- would be Bella Fourche buttress or burning daylight
10+ would be one way sunset

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
