Hi... I'm looping to head to LL next weekend (May 12-13) and I"m wondering if anyone was there this week and or last weekend, and know if there is still snow, or if the climbs are still wet?

I'm looking at ones like The Line, Its better without beacon, Corrigation Corner.

Thanks
Edward

Hey Edward, I was at the Leap two weeks ago, and the Hogsback was all clear. I didn't get to the main wall, but it looked good from across the creek... I mean trail. Did I mention the trail? Somewhat watery in parts of the hike in, but water never got over the soles of my shoes. You should be good climbing there with all this warm dry weather.

I was at the leap four days ago. I think everyone else in California and Nevada was also at the leap. Everything is in except for a couple of falcon closures (inquire at campground sign). Better wake up early if you want to be on The Line rather than in the line. jack s.

Can anyone report on what it is like during the work week?

Also Lover's Leap was in this month's Outside magazine....so I would expect a LOT more people there this season...

I don't think I have been there and not seen a snake. It's busy enough already at the Leap, the article in Outside means it is going to be crazy out there. Matt..C

That makes it easier to find a dirtbag sausage :P (they do taste good)

I know a friend and I will be out there/ camping there for a few days starting the 24th
