Has anyone been in the Amphitheatre / Sentinel / Eastern Buttress area since the big snow dump last week? How much snow is up there, particularly in the south-facing gullies?
Thanks.

Hi Hector, We shot up Beacon Buttress Gully on Sat and down the chains on Sun. The Gully was still fairly choked with snow and made for a fairly easy ascent. Icy in sections needed some solid kicking of steps and an ice axe was v welcome! other places were softer and we fell through the crust up to our bellies. Less snow on top than expected but still a good amount. See pics at
