Warm temps this week. Can anyone give a current status of the conditions? I'm up for a trip there this week - even for a day - if the ice is decent.

Roadside yesterday morning (3/14). Warm, hollow, and lots of water running. Loose death block 3/4 of the way up this route.

Thanks, Nathan! No surprise given the temps. Hopefully things will cool down.

Roadside ice is obviously in the Sun.

Anyone has recently ventured into Lee Vining and can report on the conditions?

conditions were pretty good at LVC yesterday (3/27/17)

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
