Mt St Helens - worm flows route conditions

Postby chicagosky » Sun Mar 16, 2014 3:41 pm

Hello - does anyone have any beta on current conditions on the worm flows route on Mt St Helens? Also, has it been a heavy snow year this year in the NW? Thank you in advance.

We did it last year in mid-June as a snow climb so with the snow this year probably still full winter conditions. Really long glissade when conditions are right though.

No, low snow year, about a full standard deviation less precipitation than the historical mean.
