Shepherd Pass - Mt. Williamson Conditions

I want to head up Shepherd Pass and climb the West Face of Williamson around June 30. I’m expecting a patch of snow at the top of Shepherd Pass and possibly some snow in the chute on Williamson.

Sierra mosquito reports?

I'm headed out next week for a few days backpacking in northern Yosemite, camping at elevations in the 7,000 - 10,000' range. I'm wondering when the mosquito bloom will hit that area this year -- any predictions, or reports?

Last weekend, June 13, I camped at Horton Lake out of Bishop, at 10,000' -- hardly any mosquitoes. There were more at a marshy area at 8,800' on the way in, but not too bad.

Tunemah Peak from Blue Canyon?

Yosemite Valley mid-summer tips for a first timer.

Staying in a Curry Canvas tent end of July and it's our first trip to Yosemite. We're excited but we know how busy it will be and I'm looking for any tips, tricks, must sees, trails, points and peaks that may be fun and out of the way. I also want to know about must-do's that will be busy. We may put in for a cables permit 2 days prior but not sure if this ...

Sierra Fall Ice Guides

No partners available, and I haven't been into the alpine much in the last few years. So I wanted to come out and swing the picks! Get my head back into it.

I'd love a recommendation for a guide. I'm really only interested in groups that will let clients lead. Thanks all!
