It sure felt like spring today.

Maybe winter has a few last breaths left but, it felt pretty damn warm in the sun today.  Rimmon will be good to go by next weekend.   8)

yeah, around 40 all day with some sun peeping through the fog. I am ready to climb some rock and not have to shovel snow...

Yeah and what a great day it was. Thanks bud..
Good times. Good climbs. Get out there, get after it, and most of all enjoy it.

I hope by "good to go" you mean the snow swept the glass off the rock and yet still too cold for the hoodlums to cause ruckus off the top

Yep still too cold for the crips and bloods.  You can generally use Al's black fly meter to get an idea of when the glass will be at it's worst.  Needless to say July 5th is definite NO GO. :-\  Last September, I decided to try some aid solo on the right side.  Thank god it's a smidge overhung cuz' some little shits rolled a log, about ten feet long, off the top  :o.  I got the fuck outta dodge.
