I went down with some friends on Sunday, and since I know a few are you are planning on going this weekend, I thought you might like an update on the trail conditions. How about

HOT and DRY :D

We had a good trip, got there early, got off the trail in time for lunch. No breakage (in our group, but that's another story). I haven't been there in three years, I was suprised how much more difficult is it has become. E.g. on the Waterfall, or Whale's Tail, the middle line was easy enough to do without lockers. Now it is dug out, and it took me several attempts to find the right line. Here are a few pictures:
