Hey all, my partner and I are planning to climb the Cathedral traverse in a week and wondering if anyone has done it yet this season (we know its early season for it), and what conditions look like along the way. Thanks!

  • second hand info, Wednesday I was told by another climber that said the Rangers have yet to know of anyone going up the North Ridge on the Grand yet.

Teewinot has quite a bit of snow on the East face as well...I would expect to deal with a decent amount of snow doing the Cathedral until well into August.  I was going to go up and try it this Saturday but weather looks iffy so we decided to go to the Winds.  Maybe I'll make it up next weekend, if you go Peter post up conditions and I'll do the same if I'm back up there.

Anyone have any updates on conditions on the grand?

No need for axes, spikes, or crampons if headed up OS/ Exum area routes.  Approach shoes are just fine.

Still a bit of snow along the Koven and on the East Ridge of Owen otherwise everything along the Grand traverse is free of snow. The meadows are still covered in snow though (?), that was a bit surprising but not stopping anyone from climbing anything. 

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
