Matterhorn Peak conditions?

by deungsan » Thu Oct 11, 2018 8:28 pm

I’m hoping to climb Matterhorn Peak in a week or so and was wondering about current conditions, especially with respect to snow.

A recent TR on Whitney revealed several inches of snow. However, Yosemite webcams (lower elevations, obviously) don’t indicate any.

Has anyone heard anything about Matterhorn? Would love to be able to do it light and fast, without crampons and poles, just wearing trail runners.

Thanks.

There's a dusting of snow hanging around on northern aspects as of 10/12, which I doubt will melt anytime soon. But it's not enough for crampons, and IIRC the route on Matterhorn is south- and west-facing.
