The Valley rim got a dusting from the recent storm, which will melt off as the week continues. Valley floor and most bouldering is dry. Most walls on the north side are dry, while most walls on the south side are wet and seeping. Most climbs in the lower Merced are dry. Typical spring conditions.

I was at P&J's yesterday and it was steaming hot in the sun. No problems with snow at all. I'd imagine most other spring crags @ Yos are good to go. Hoping to give El Cap Base a whirl next weekend!

Thunderbolt Peak in the Palisades
I was there this past weekend ski touring in the badger pass / glacier point area. It was really warm for ski touring and we were in shell pants half zipped and a t-shirt when moving.

We were hanging out down in the meadow on saturday for an hour and the temps were in the low 50's. I was wearing a nano puff and shell to stay warm when not moving.

I imagine that climbing would be fine as long as you stay on sunny areas as your hands would get cold quick.

Snow is still barely clinging to the tops of the peaks and in the cols.

Last 3 days I was climbing in the valley and anything sunny was nice and warm. Few tourists (midweek, early season.) Waterfalls in full flow, and no crowds. We climbed Nutcracker and were the only ones at the cliff, except for a couple nude free soloists toping out on After Six as we approached. Yes, it's that warm! Also had Reed's Pinnacle area completely to ourselves today. Plenty of good options right now :-) Enjoy!

Below "Inspect Her Gadget" at HP40 after sending it the previous day.
You should be more specific. North facing areas have more snow, as do place is in Yosemite proper versus down on the 140.

P&J, Reeds and Cookie are all totally dry. As are many of the other crags on the 140.

El Cap base will have no snow, but some routes could be seeping.

There will still be a little snow in shady spots at higher elevation.
