I showed up to Camp 4 last week and enjoyed 3.5 good climbing days. My friend Scott showed me around to a few of the area classics and I was just getting used to the style here. Then Nature decided to throw a loop into my plans and brought in some snow yesterday. There was 1-2 inches in the valley but it was already getting slushy by the end of the day.
Then it got worse. When I looked outside my tent this morning I saw this:
It dumped 6 inches of the white fluffy stuff overnight and it’s been snowing all day. My 3,000 mile trip to Yosemite is officially busted. Yosemite was the main goal for the fall but it was too little too late for me. I’ll have to try again in the spring. I’ll be heading to either Vegas or Bishop tomorrow or the next day.
