A friend and I are looking to do some climbing in the High Sierras the last week and a half of June. I am hoping you guys can shed some light on the conditions that time of year. I understand you should be prepared for anything, but will there be a ton of snow, bugs, temps, etc... What will the temps be? Thanks for your help.

Danny

It completely depends on where you go. In June last year, places like Tuolumne Meadows in Yosemite were inaccessable in due to record snowfall. This year is the opposite. Last year mosquitos were terrible and we had trouble with bears.

If you stay at lower elevation, like the valley or Owens river gorge in Bishop, it's a different story altogether. Like you said, you need to be prepared for anything.
