It's going to be fine at that time this year; the approach will most likely be pretty direct up the ridge still.

The only problem you might have is the weather in May; could be awesome, could be junk.

Be prepared for an extra long approach--looks like the road is closed:

As said, the road is still closed and I haven't heard any rumors yet about when it will be open. We also haven't been getting freezing temps at night and so our snow is still a mess of unconsolidated slush. I haven't been above 5000' in a couple of weeks but my fiance was up high on Shuksan and ran into funky snow up to the notch at the top of Shannon Ridge. Hopefully that will change by May and we'll get into a good corn cycle. Jason4Too

There was almost a trip report over on cascadeclimbers.com but their TR feature is not working so it just shows up blank. It was climbed in the last couple of days but I don't know much about conditions. Jason4Too

Snow conditions were good last weekend above 5000 feet in the Enchantments until the afternoon sun baked it some. Nick Sweeney
