There was no shortage of ice at higher elevations this past weekend. Overnight lows were in the mid to upper teens in some spots. That being said, it melted quickly with the sun in the morning. The overnight lows this upcoming weekend are also predicted to be much higher than this past weekend.

While I wouldn't be too worried about ice, you definitely want to take the Trap Dyke seriously. Make sure you've researched the route and are comfortable with rock scrambling with substantial exposure. I'd definitely not attempt the Dyke on Sunday with the rains that are forecast for that day.

EDIT: The forecast apparently is calling for the rains to hold off until Monday... but still worth double checking again and again as the planned day of the ascent draws near.
