I was up on Mount Lady Washington on Monday; here's a picture halfway up:

Other than that, I didn't take a good look up Dreamweaver.

On Lady Washington the snow was crisp and firm, having finally frozen the previous night after several days of melting. There was a little new snow on the ground, mostly in the bootprints left in the snow, and a little snow fell during the day without much accumulation. The rest of my pictures are here.

^The route was still in great condition yesterday (June 8), it's still got at least a few days of snow/ice all the way to the top.

On that note: a BD Viper tool of mine got left somewhere b/w the summit and the loft while we were bailing ahead of a storm.. if anyone runs into it I'd definitely reimburse to get it back.

I'd say so, Matt. Lower portions are still holding snow quite well. Crux will probably be rock with some ice...and brittle at that.
Higher segments should still be ok. Though hit it early. The higher portion runs early with water.
I'd run up there & take some more current pics for you, but I have no time before the 10th.

If you're interested, there's a LONG route I want to do that climbs Dreamweaver, traverses the Loft, raps the Beaver into the Notch, climbs the Staircase to Longs and down the Cables Route.
Need to do this soon. Hit me up if yer interested! :)

Darn! Wish I saw this earlier! I ended up climbing the south face of Petit Grepon yesterday. Incredible climb.
Unfortunately I'm back in WA now
