Some news on the reservation front! All of the climbing reservations have been processed. A new batch of confirmation letters is being sent out daily with climbing cards. Virtually every permit was approved. If you didn't get your reservation, feel free to call the climbing rangers at Paradise. We have suggestions on ways to enhance your chances of getting a "walk up permit."
Lately, the weather has been warm and dry. Because of this, the rangers habe been leaving the road to Paradise open throughout the night. Note however, that this is only done during periods of good weather.
The Westside Road opened on May 1 to Dry Creek.
It looks as though HWY 123 is definitely going to be closed for part of the summer.
A number of teams summited this past weekend. More about the route conditions soon.
