Comments
Noticed a few things while climbing this morning that I want to submit: the first was numerous slides on the south aspect of Timpanogos visible from the canyon that appeared recent, in the last day or two. Sorry no pictures, my phone couldn't do much justice with the lighting. The others were a noticeable increase in the temperature from about 11-noon w/ an increase in cloud cover and wind gusts that began about that time. It was enough to cause some snow to come down over Bridalveil and us to bail rather hastily. With the poor snowpack structure the danger is definitely looking like high by tomorrow.
