Anyone know Mount Whitney Conditions (Mid Febuary) to climb the East Face / East Buttress?

This may be laughable due to current weather, but I really...really...really would like to know.

Rock on. Any info would be greatly appreciated. Thanks - David

Road is currently closed about 2 miles before the campground. Maybe bring a bike for that section.  Its REALLY dry up there. If you had a warm sunny day with no wind, you could climb it

Keep an eye on this, but I'm pretty sure you'd still have significant snow on ledges and ice in cracks (despite the mild winter):
