Turns out it is very windy and warm but like Telewoman says, it's not over yet!
We attempted Green Butte Ridge on Saturday. Did not need snowshoes for any part of the approach.
But we got shut down by the wind just as we gained the ridge.
Here's a video from Saturday - my friend leaning into the wind there is 6 foot 5 and 250 pounds so should give you an idea of the wind speeds we were up against. I don't know how fast but it was strong. Couldn't continue. Might go back in a couple weeks. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YlElZMAVx6I
