With warm temps around the last little bit, headed up to Avalanche Lake today to see how things have fared higher up.  Climbed Avalanche Gully and got eyes on Adirondike and Trap Dike.  Avalanche Gully was in decent shape.  Slushy snow and can't always get screws in, but the climbing was soft and sweet.  P2 has some time on the rock.  There is adequate ice for screws (and a long cordellete attached to who-knows-what hanging from the curtain), but you could bring some .75inch pro.  Adirondike looked good, even better with some shorter screws on your rack.  And--as you might suspect--Trap is looking good.  Some great end of season alpine ice to be had!
