The North Fork Lone Pine Creek. The North Fork trail is clear for a bit further but soon you get into significant snow.

The Ebersbacher Ledges look like they're mostly clear of snow. I didn't see anybody use them so I continued on up along the creek. The creek is getting hard to cross in a couple of places. I wish I had used the ledges.

There are two sections of the road that have quite a bit of rockfall that has slid off from the unstable slope to the right. It is still possible to drive through by weaving around the boulders. Snow is not an issue on the road until about a mile below

Some pretty large rocks on the road, but you can just squeeze through to the left.

There were about ten vehicles parked about a mile down from the Whitney trailhead.
