Tuttle Creek TH Conditions + S Face Routes of LPP beta

by WML » Thu May 20, 2010 5:24 pm

Hey there, I was contemplating a trip Sun-Mon to climb either the Winter Route or Winter Chimney on LPP's south face. I've read very little about either other than what is on SP and in the Secor book....

So what I'm sayin' (or askin') is two things:

1. What are current road conditions for Tuttle Creek TH?

2. Does anybody have any info RE: either of the aforementioned routes on Lone Pine Peak?


Thanks so much!

1. I went up Tuttle Creek about a month ago and got very close to the TH. You should be able to get all the way to the TH by now.

It's all clear all the way up to the base of the WR. Have fun but do be advised that there will be major run off in the afternoons.

Also, we are expecting some stormy weather this weekend so be careful.

Here's both sections of the T-Creek from the Whitney Cave area of the A-Hills last week..

Here's the link for a blow up of the same shot:

Thanks, Chief. In terms of runoff, you mean the creek roaring right?

Just took a look at the latest NOAA projections for the area, and it looks like for once my days off are coinciding with the crap weather clearing out a bit. Sunday shouldn't be too windy, or rainy, my two major concerns.

On the other hand, wrangling up a partner for those days has been rough!

Anyone been up the winter route (or have pics where the route is visible) over the last month?
