Wondering if anyone has been climbing up in the Uinta's yet. Curious how much snow is still hanging around the crags. Shakes the Clown

Went up last friday to look around. Mosquito is good, so I'd wager that Stone Garden is just as good. Maybe watch for seepage if anything. Base at Mosquito was nearly dry as a bone. Ruth Lake had some climbable spots. Was actually two guys climbing the 7 and 8 on Good Medicine's far right. The main wall belay was clean, but the shade was cool and there was a bit of water streaking down in places. But overall, there was climbing to be done. I think a week or two more and a touch warmer temps and it will be Uinta season for sure, but why wait? Mahcire

Definitely still snow. It snowed upwards of a food and a half at Ruth lake, I know that for sure. So Cliff shouldn't be much different. picholasforbes

Feeling obligated to answer my own post and provide info. Uinta's seem to be good to go. Was at the Stone Garden on Friday the 20th. Some things were a little damp, but nothing that would cause a route to be a no go "including the cave area". Everything looked pretty IN. Shakes the Clown

Was up there this weekend at Ibantik lake area. Still some big snow drifts but you can easily walk around them. Also still pretty wet from snow runoff in places. It was low 40's at night and probably mid 70's during the day, really nice. Mattberr

Was up there wed-thurs. The mosquitoes came and went. Worst in morning and evening. Sometimes they were bad during the day and 20 minutes later there would be none. So prepare for them. Its only gonna get worse til late August. Courtney Pace
