Bare ground down low. Maybe 3" or so of snow above 2500'.
Have a quiche, now, or maybe a tort.  You deserve it!

Winter?  Mrs. Eyebolter and the four month old went out bouldering in the sun today.  35 degrees, blue sky and rhino horns!  Bouldering barefoot in a pullover hardly qualifies as winter.  I'm starting to believe Al Gore.

Climbed Winterlude Saturday.  Not thick at all.  Backed off mid-way.  Resorted to TR.  Is this flow
usually quite thick in a good year?

Way In The Wilderness?  Anyone been by there lately?

I have not heard anything about it lately. with the warm temps I would be surprised if it is in good shape. if you are going to head out there I would suggest a very early start. that alcove becomes an oven by 11AM at this time of year.
