Round top conditions or photo

Postby pjc30943 » Fri Jun 15, 2012 12:26 pm

Anyone familiar with the current conditions like on round top? Any beta or a photo appreciated.
I'll be taking someone on their first mountaineering experience (this being a gentle intro), and want to check the summit snow coverage and approach posthole factor (if there is one). Thanks!

This probably isn't the side you want, but here is Round Top from the south on Tuesday
(Far ridge, near ridge is Raymond)

And here's a wider panorama shot of the whole area: [Large] http://174.132.76.252/~fedak/modules/Ga ... norama.jpg
There's really not a lot of snow left anywhere.

I dont have first hand info but I was at Carson pass 6/13 and it looks like except for the usual large snowbanks it is pretty clear from the saddle switchbacks around the southwest side to the top.

Perfect, thank you! I'll find another location, then.
