Climbed the Wham yesterday (9/7). Despite hours of rain the night before, the route was in perfect (dry, good friction) condition by 7am. We protected one pitch from just above the two blocks to just above the crux slab (70m rope). I placed one nut (BD #11, I think) at the base of the crux plus 2-3 camalots in the range .5-1. The crux slab felt like 5.2, and you can keep the entire route at 4th class by staying on the ridge until just above the crux.

I would expect the route to get some snow/hail over the next few days.
