Staying Warm on South Face of Washington Column

Was there this last weekend. Hogsback was wet in places. East Wall was perfect. Main wall wet with small patches of snow. it's been so warm, however, I wouldn't be surprised if the wet spots have dried up by now.

Was there over the weekend, conditions were great. They just opened the campground on Friday I think, but aren't charging until May 4. The water is not on yet.
Didn't see any rattlesnakes but other people around did.

Anybody know about the falcon-related closures? I heard that part or all of the main wall was closed, but didn't see any signs. We didn't climb there but saw other parties that did.

Was going to go to the Leap tomorrow, but weather forecast looks like rain in South lake Tahoe. Can anyone up there verify how climbable things probably are?

I would not bet on it being dry. If you are really hard up, you can definitely climb in the wet/rain on granite though.

Check out the Sierra at Tahoe webcams


It has rained a lot today. There will likely be some dry rock somewhere by the weekend though.

Thanks. I'm not that desperate, will wait to head up there. Though all that snow would keep the rattlesnakes at bay...

Just an fyi.... Came VERY close to stepping on a ~3.5' long rattler the other day at the Leap. Had just finished Bear's Reach, maybe 30' from the lip just starting to head down the walkoff and he was sunning himself on the edge of the trail. I barely heard the rattle over the wind and saw some movement out of the corner of my eye, looked down and he was coiled and rattling. I stepped within probably 8" of him.

It was a scary reminder. Just watch the trail where you are walking and look closely. They blend into their surroundings very well. They aren't aggressive so if you can steer clear of them you should be fine.
