I'm planning on climbing in the Valley next weekend (April 1-3). While the long period of warming has me feeling good about conditions, there are a couple of areas I want to climb at that I haven't been to yet in winter, so I don't know how wet they are and how likely they are to dry out or become safe by next weekend.
Could the regulars pitch in and give me some guesses?
Or warnings as to any main routes that might be wet even if the area in general is dry?
The areas I want to go to are:
Royal Arches (Select Routes) I know a lot of this area is wet, but it really depends on the main waterfalls off of the rim. I'm wondering about Peruvian Flake and especially Superslide
Glacier Point Apron
Camp 4 Wall
El Cap Base - I know this one can be dangerous from stuff falling off of the rim. What should I look for/consider in determining if it is reasonably safe & clear?
I guess part 2 to this question is the same question, but especially considering the huge amount of snow received last weekend. Temps look to be sunny & high (high 50s-60s) all next week, but I really don't have a feel for how quickly the snow at the lower elevations and south aspects will burn off.
