Doing the O.S. or Upper Exum 9/13-14. Any info/beta would be greatly appreciated.
Weather, ice axe, crampons, etc. etc.??
Thanks for any help.

They're probably gettin' snow right now...

Friends were there a couple weeks ago and the upper mountain got around 2 feet of snow. There was a report of a couple rescued who got stuck in the snow.

Temps predicted to be well below freezing thru this weekend. So, won't melt off all this new precip.

Will be pretty much a winter climb and not to be taken lightly (the O-S is a killer in these conditions).

My opinion? Unless your up for that type of thing, I'd find something warmer and dryer to climb.

Bummer, but, 'tis the season up there...
