Has anyone been to Frenches yet? Is there still snow? Been so nice... was hoping it would be melted off enough to check it out soon

I've heard from a few sources--some reliable some not-- that it's been opened up from the snow.... however, it tends to ooze for a while after it's unburied. I'd say the next 3-4 day stretch where it's dry up in zig zag and you're good to go.

I'm no authority on this place, I don't live within 45 minutes of the dome. But I think it's about time to start climbing there.

Heard from someone who climbed up there in the sun on Saturday - no snow in sight.

Just got back from there and as of this minute there is no snow. The front face of the dome is a bit damp but i think it is good to climb on.
