East Rose Update

Daniel Bursom and myself hiked in and ate a little Spaghetti Falls on Saturday. The ice was pretty dry and liked to diner plate. There is very very very little snow in the canyon. The wind storms of a couple weeks ago have knocked a considerable amount of trees over the trail, though the bulk of the damage seems to be within the first half mile of the trailhead. Ice off the Giant's Belly looked gigantic fat. The approach to California Ice appeared to be mostly ice. All routes in the canyon were in good shape, though I can't vouch for Sand Dune falls. Even the slow to form WI4 corner of Hellroaring falls was in and ready to climb.
