As of today, March 13, the North Face, the Larks and the Through, are all STILL in a very good condition. We climbed The NE Face yesterday, finished via the headwall and had a marvelous time. If you can get off work this week, go climb it. The snow and ice will not last for ever. It has been at least 10 years since Tahquitz iced up this good. Go and do it!
Still looked good this morning. There is a lot of snow and ice covering the NF. Temps are up today, but if anyone shows up in the next two-three days, there is still a distinct snow and ice line to be climbed on the face.
This is what the headwall looked like Friday.
Miguel Carmona and Joe Lemay plus another party from LA climbed the route Saturday. I was hiking up there this morning and it still looks ok. It might look a bit different by later this week, for sure.
Just found out (3-15-14:20 PT) that Larry Cote and a friend climbed the route yesterday, Sunday. Larry said the face looked great and the headwall was still in good shape.
