General Conditions on May 28, 2018

Brewer Creek Trailhead is open for the 2018 climbing season. The road is melted out, the bathroom is open and the trailhead is stocked with and summit passes, wilderness permits and packout bags.

All eastside routes are in great conditions for skiing and climbing. The first half-mile out of Brewer Creek Trailhead is a mix of snow and bare ground. Continuous snow exists at the 7500ft level. Snow surfaces are smooth and coverage is good on the Hotlum-Wintun route. Camping is on snow no open water sources were found this weekend so bring extra fuel to melt snow for water.
