I am thinking of climbing Laurel Mt (NE Gully) or Mt Morrison (East valley) this weekend. Does anyone know the snow conditions? Is the NE gully safe to climb? I don't know how much snow/wind the area got lately. Thanks!
I skied Baby Morrison a week ago; snow coverage was mainly deep dry powder. With the cement storm we had last Thurs, I would be concerned about stability and cohesion on those 30 degree slopes. Laurel doesn't sound like a good idea; I'd tackle Morrison if I had to do either. Bring a buddy and a beacon.
Hey Fruit Fly! Did you ever go out to Convict Lake peaks? Curious what you found. With this little system coming thru, we hope to find a nice layer of pow by morn. Makes Old Man's Bowl sound pretty tasty.
