Mt Whitney - Chute conditions

by juggernaut » Tue May 22, 2012 7:17 am

Anyone been there lately ? Pics ? I did see a bunch of pics of the MR (most parts are devoid of snow), but I would like to get some info. on the conditions at the Chute in the main trail (from Trail Camp to Trail Crest). Is there enough snow to go up the chute ? Also how is the snow on the main trail in general ?

I was on LPP on Sunday - had a good view of the switchbacks, which appeared snow-free. Some snow in the chute to the north of the trail, but it's going fast. Early afternoon temps near 13k were near 70!
