The White Mountain Report: Jan 17th, 2019
Yet another winter storm is on the way for this weekend. [YIKES] Unlike the others so far this season, this one purports to be a REALLY big one and the scuttlebutt is somewhere between 1-2 FEET! This one's going to come in later on Saturday and wind down Monday morning. So you can certainly get in your climbing fix on Saturday.

Do we really need another guidebook for the White Mountains? From what I see I would have to answer that in the affirmative!

Selected Ice Conditions effective January 17, 2019
I raised the IceCON rating to a 5 today. It's unusual to get a 5 rating this early in the season, but this one has certainly been special. All the climbs in the Amphitheater are IN, as is pretty much everything else at Frankenstein. It's really pretty impressive just how much ice there is out there right now, in spite of how sunny it is. Just goes to show what snow and cold will do for things. That said, we have a VERY BIG round of snow coming in on Saturday evening through early Monday. Predictions are for 2 feet, but if we even get half that it's a big deal. If you're planning on climbing on Sunday just be aware of what that much snow means and please drive safe on the way home.
Huntington Ravine options, but beware snow  
Repentance IN - P2 start tricky Click to see route picture.
Standard Route IN - top pitch is much better Click to see route picture.
