Early Spring Conditions in the Valley

The Yosemite Valley weather as been very unusual for late May, it is more like early wet spring conditions. All the waterfalls are going off and there is a good amount of seepage on some of the walls.  The good news is the weather is supppose to improve this weekend and be warm and dry for a while.
Yesterday I spent half the day rope soloing down in the lower Merced canyon, climbed about 15 pitches total, then  took a break, and on my way out of the park I stopped at Manure Pile Buttress and did 2 laps on After Six. Today looks like it will be a rest day as it is raining on and off in the valley and the forecast does not look great for Thursday.
