Can anyone give an update on ice conditions?

Thank you James. The last few reports have said nothing about JL Roadside.
Does anyone have any beta on the conditions of Roadside? Thank you.

roadside is pretty solidly formed, although the ice isn't great quality at the moment and a good amount of it is beneath a few inches of snow. it's still climbable for sure, though. don't know if i'd bother heading up to horsetail, it's mostly buried in snow.

Lee Vining:
Bard Harrington and The Narrows are not in.
Main Wall and Chouinard Fals are fat and crowded (The three stooges are pretty crappy right now)

Does anyone know how to descend from horsetail falls and North Gulley Climbs in June lake? Those are the names here on MP.

I also have an "Eastern Sierra Ice Mini-Guide.pdf". Are the "horeshoe falls" and "tatum falls" in this guide the same?

Thanks,

Thanks very much Kevin, but is there an anchor, a tree, or should I do a V thread?

Bolted anchor on the right side  - two ropes if I'm not mistaken

There’s also a walk off for North Gully back and to the right toward the tracks.
