Nice! That's going to shave an hour of my drive to the ditch this week!

Just got back from TM on Friday night. Most the routes are dry and the bugs aren't bad yet. Bottom part of Fairview was still wet... made the 1st pitch crux a bit eye opening. Completely dry after that though. Mid week there was nobody up there. We hopped on every route we wanted to and never waited in line! We got in close to 30 pitches in 2 days on classic routes, that never happens once the campground opens (at least for me). Ya'll should head on up and take advantance of the solitude right now.
Cheers

We left the parking lot close to 1 pm ish. Gave the nice little snow ramp a chance to soften up before kicking steps up it.
