High Sierras Ice Conditions

Hello all,

I'm thinking of climbing Mt. Mendel via either the Right Couloir or Ice Nine at the end of the month or the beginning of June. Does anyone have any information about conditions on either of these two routes?

Thanks!
Michael

Split Mountain East couloir

Hi all, has anyone been up there recently? What do conditions look like? Hoping to score some ice there in a couple of weeks.

Never even approached Split. Some report that the East (central) couloir melts out pretty fast and that the water ice rarely forms. Then again it's been pretty cool lately and we scored great ice in the Clyde Couloir on Jun2, 2012 after a dry season and a small cold spell: ...

Will be in SoCal this weekend, and visiting a friend who lives close to Verdugo Mountain.

I was thinking of hiking up the road/trail from the north off of the 210-Freeway. There's a route that starts off of a spur immediately south of the freeway, but I have "been told" that this is a high-crime area.
