I was planning on leaving for Bishop tomorrow from Oregon, but just saw that Bishop has a High Wind Advisory in effect for tomorrow night, saying that "driving on 395 will be very hard" (this is the road south in Bishop.
Need suggestions on an alternate bouldering destination until the weather clears! Red rocks? Something in SoCal? Where is the weather good right now? Help! Much appreciated,
I guess it depends on how long you're traveling for. There's supposed to be some precipitation in So Cal this weekend moving thru with a cold front, so Josh will be cold. But that could also affect Bishop since the snow level is supposed to drop considerably. Also, Josh and Bishop aren't exactly close. Sure, you have to head back up in that direction anyways, but if it's a short trip, that's a lot of driving.
I don't see anything that says 70mph winds. 15 to 20. Go for it. It is your fastest way down. It really isn't that bad. It will be its worst right around mamaoth, but after that the mountians will block the majority of the winds. Besides it's desert, and it's a beutiful drive. go for it. And the winds won't stop either no matter where you go they will stay in front of the storm. So take the scenic route.
