Dry to Door Jamb, some snow patches to Loder Peak. Went to the next high point from Loder before descending and making my way back along jura creek. Lots of scrambling and route finding going down that way because of water/snow/flood damage.
Read's Tower (May 22 2014)
Lots of snow still on the Tower but wasn't that bad, staying as far climbers left as possible where it was the driest/least amount. Besides the cloud cover the weather was nice, little wind.
Thanks Dieter! Also, I would love to get your opinion on the Southeast Lyell Glacier. Do you think there's any safe way to scramble up to it -- or close to it?
Or is there so much snow that we should stay well away?
I can't help you on that one as I'm not much of a scrambler. There's a great report right now called the Great Divide ski trip. I'm not sure if they travelled on Lyell Glacier, but it would give you an idea of snow conditions on glaciers of similar elevations. There wouldn't be much snow near the bottom of the glacier.
