Its a breezy morning to say the least this morning. High winds race through camp with gale forces. The high yesterday was 33 degrees with an overnight low of 19 degrees. It’s currently 30 degrees with cloudy skies. We received 0.61” of precipitation and our snow depth is around 4”. Traction is a must to reach the summit. US Hwy. 441 is closed for winds and snow/ice. The High Wind Warning lifts at noon today with clearing skies all before the next system moves in Sunday evening into Tuesday morning. This system may pack a punch and drop 5-10” of snow on LeConte. Stay tuned! Have a great day folks!
2pm yesterday I set off for Myrtle Point. Snow began to fall hard with huge flakes and heavy winds that pushed it all in my beard. Winds roared throughout the night making it a very restful nights sleep. Very relaxing day ahead. See you at the top!
