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

Tuesday, 1/16/2018. Well the flash freeze experienced this weekend (55 and rain on Friday and then near 0 degrees on Saturday) delivered as hoped! Local climbers are scrambling to get on first ascents never seen in the area before! Pok-o has many interesting lines as do many other areas. Right now is a great time to be an ice climber in the Adirondacks!!! As always, be warned – it can all be gone in the blink of an eye but for now the weather looks ok through the week…
