Yup. Was out the last two days. A little wet and some ice blobs in the dark corners but there's plenty of dry rock if you don't mind post-holing around in the snow Simon Thompson

climbed yesterday and dint' find anything wet. Did find a completely frozen anchor at the top of RMC, which did not instill confidence, but we added a thin piece of cord and went for it. I didn't bring any extra webbing or I would have replaced both the p1 rapp and p3 rapp on that climb. p1 rapp is frayed and scary, but you can use p2 rapp to get all the way to the ground.

sorry for not doing my part :(

Lots of dry rock but do be careful...I was bouldering down by the high e/yellow wall area yesterday and heard ice fall all day long. Charles Kinbote

depends on which climb, but anywhere from packed 3 inches, to unpacked 3 feet.

Rock is sweet. Wet spots under roofs for sure and plenty of snow on the topouts and ledges. Alot of stuff is real dry though or dry enough. Wear your helmet. Plenty of large chunks of ice falling all over jdrago

Okay thanks for info I'll be picking up a guidebook at the local shop I'm sure they can direct me to the drier spots. Regular approach shoes good enough to get to crag tho? Mostafa

Yeah those would work fine. If you have micro spikes on that wouldnt hurt either. Alot of ice on the trails in certain spots. Have fun man! jdrago

It's been unseasonably cold this March. The cliff gets full on sun until about 2:30, then it's in the shade for the remaining hours. Pack two different wardrobes, it feels like different worlds this time of year. lucander
