Ya, I went out to three o'clock rock on Wednesday the 10th to climb Total Soul, there was absolutely no snow on the approach, but there was a good chuck at the base of the wall. We actually ended up starting to climb off route and climbing some easier rock to the first pitch anchors. From there we climbed the actual route the rest of the way up. Warning though, if it's your first time going to Darrington, give the walls at least two days of sun to dry out, it's all slab climbing and if there's no friction your totally screwed. Silent running and total soul are great routes to climb too, exelent slab climbing.

Thanks.  Yea silent running and total soul were what we were planning for next weekend if the weather holds.
