Planning Trip 2nd week of March to Indian Creek.

What type of hit or miss weather should we expect?

Sun and warmth to rain, snow, wind, and cold. Same as the rest of the country. Have fun. Sean Nelb

That is interesting, I thought only in my State the weather could change that fast. This is going to be a challenge to pack for so that I am prepared for all these elements at once.

It would be cool to try and get it narrowed down a bit. Do you know what the averages usually are for that time of year in Indian Creek, UT and not what the rest of the Country is doing.

You can find averages and norms on various weather websites. Try the new app Climbing Weather too if you like. sarcasm

dream canyon fun!
cold nights ... almost perfect days ... not a lot of people .. bring some tarps in case it rains for a stretch then you don't have to be pined down in yer tent.. temps in the day upper 50's night's can dip as low as the twenty's .. be careful climbing after any rain not only because of the soft rock. the freeze thaw during that time of year can break of rocks from up high on the cliffs. make sure to ware your helmet at the base of the wall at all times .

Are there things to tie tarps to or is it necessary to have poles for the tarps. kman154

Bring poles for the tarps and be prepared to beak it all down when you drive off to the wall for the day or the wind will steal it. nick serrano

It was great that time of year last year. I'm hedging my bets and going at the same time this year.

Nights will be cold. Days in the sun will be nice. Probably wind at some point.
