Ice Report

 

WARNING – Please read:

Ice climbing is truly a dangerous activity. Care and judgment born out of experience are imperative. Weather and ice conditions change hourly and what may appear to be “good conditions” to one climber may not be so to another. Please remember that just because a conditions report says that a particular climb is “in”, each individual is ultimately responsible for making his/her own climbing decisions.

GENERAL SCENE

Monday afternoon, 1/26/15.

The temperatures are chilly but not horribly cold the next few days. 0 or minus 5 at night and teens during the day. The snowstorm East of here won’t bring us more than 3 – 6 inches supposedly but that will make the skiing pretty good overall. It should help the ice too which is thick in areas but getting a bit brittle.
