yale and princeton conditions

Postby mtn_nut » Sun Oct 21, 2012 5:32 pm

Princeton is completely snow free as of 10/20/12 and yale is almost snow free too. i climbed both this weekend with road runners since i knew that boots would be overkill after seeing them from the highway. the only snow on yale is on the east ridge, and is easily avoidable and does not require any traction devices.

two weeks ago i climbed harvard and columbia with snow covering most of the trail, and now harvard and columbia look bare too.

YMMV

I had a similar experience on the the SW slopes route yesterday. See conditions report.

Can either of you update me on the condition of the Princeton road up to radio towers and the cairn/steps?
