Mt St. Helens Climbing Conditions - July 2nd, 2011

Due to the heavy snowpack, the winter route (Worm Flows route) is still the current climbing route. I actually made the climb last weekend, 

and can confirm the notes from the climbing report:
  • Forest Road 83 is open to the Marble Mountain Sno-Park; you cannot drive to the June Lake Trailhead yet.
  • Climber's Bivouac is still closed and not expected to open until mid-July.
  • The first mile of the Swift Ski Trail is bare, snow beyond. 
  • The ridges are starting to melt out.
The full report can be found here.
