Did anyone get out this weekend? I was looking at the winter weather outlook on NOAA. They're still sorting out the winter prediction but since El Nino conditions have shown up by now, they're leaning on a warmer than normal winter. For the short term, looks like a low pressure will coming into the state by Thursday morning, bring snow shower to elevations 6K and higher. Hmmmmm.....will it stick?

Thats a good question! I guess we'll just have to see, but usually once we get a strong cold winter blast like this it sets up a pattern from Alaska.

Good place to get some weather predictions that might affect us. http://tahoeweatherdiscussion.com/

Check out Madera Peaks weather:

Thursday A chance of rain and snow showers, mainly after 10am. Snow level 7100 feet. Mostly cloudy, with a high near 44. East northeast wind 5 to 10 mph becoming south southwest in the morning. Winds could gust as high as 15 mph. Chance of precipitation is 30%.
Thursday Night Snow showers likely. Cloudy, with a low around 24. South southeast wind 5 to 10 mph. Chance of precipitation is 70%. New snow accumulation of less than a half inch possible.
Friday Snow showers likely. Cloudy, with a high near 33. South southwest wind around 5 mph. Chance of precipitation is 70%.
Friday Night A 40 percent chance of snow showers. Mostly cloudy, with a low around 22. Southwest wind around 5 mph becoming northeast in the evening.
Saturday Partly sunny, with a high near 36. North wind around 5 mph.

We found some cool climbing near Globe Rock only 1oo feet off the road this weekend. Heres some pix of a little 5 bolt 11c/d we put up on Sunday called "Mission Impossible". A bit mossy toward the top but the whole route is powerful, steep and pumpy.

The Silver Divide... man the whole range was going off in pinks and purples.

It was good to get up there one more time. I wonder if this next storm will shut it down.

LE was a fun crag, I love the fact that there is a river with swimming holes right there.

Could be a lot of fun in summer.

I think SEEK AND YE SHALL FIND was my favorite route.
Funnel Runnel sort of fell apart at the end, but the first pitch was OK. Fun to do something that went to the top though.

Ahoy, looks like a fine late season romp there Tom! (And purdy fish, Matt.)

But yea, you missed out on the hot day dip in the pools.

Funnel Runnel sort of fell apart at the end, but the first pitch was OK. Fun to do something that went to the top though.

Blasted domes of the Sierra almost always ease off into low angle slabbage at the top, making for less interesting final pitches. (Snake Dike somehow still ranks as a classic.) :)

In Oct. we were able to squeeze in a long overdue day at the old stomping grounds.

Lost eagle is an amazing place, i hung out there a ton this last summer, and the swimming holes are super fun, the melting wall has some of the wildest holds at shuteye, i like that there are no bolts on the melting wall, only anchors bolts, in all time i spent at lost eagle, only saw one climbing party while we were swimming at the creek, and it was there first time they were at lost eagle, i did find the road sign in the bushes and put it back up, it would be hard to find 6s23 without the road marker, it's one of my favorite places at shuteye, and can't wait for next summer to go back, heres a couple pix of amy and i chillen at lost eagle, happy climbing mike a.

Anybody know if the road is open to the Big Sleep area?

Also we are heading up to Wawona Dome on Tuesday if anybody wants to join.

Tork I heard it was closed but call the north fork forest service office and they'll know for sure. They usually close the green gates on Dec 1st.
