Shhhh! October sucks. Snow, wind or rain. Don't go!

(J/k) it's really a locals only month as the climbers from outisde the area stop coming and it is a great time to climb there except for the bees in the sun on the south facing walls

Dustin. The best months to climb at the Lake are March, April, May, and then September, October, and November. In general. There are great days all year depending on sun, temps, and shade, as well as your willingness to hike the approach in the snow/ice. Have fun. Chris treggE
