Palisades conditions

by ianp » Fri Aug 26, 2011 8:13 pm

Anyone have recent information on snow conditions in the Palisades? Specifically, I'm doing the Thunderbolt to Sill traverse and am wondering what conditions are like in the couloirs on Thunderbolt.

The snow's annoying, but there's no need for crampons or axe in SW chute #1 as of last week. Photos here.

I'm not sure if this helps at all, but here's the view from Agassiz on 8.20.11:
