The White Mountain Report: Jan 13th, 2018
Thursday was the first day in over a month when I let my wood stove go out during the day. Considering that I get ~60% of my heat from wood and the stove runs 24/7, that's a major milestone for any winter. Temps today have been in the upper 30's all day and they are projected to be in the 40's or even low 50's tomorrow. With the rain that's projected, I may have to put on an Hawaiian shirt and jams for the day!

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

Route of the Moment

Odell's Gully -  WI 3 II

Odell's offer's some very nice technical ice climbing in a spectacular setting. Generally the right side is the most difficult, middle easiest and left side somewhere in between. The upper section near the top-out can be prone to avalanche.

Quotes From the Ledge:
The hype pretended that M7, or 8, or 12 for that matter, had never before been climbed un thil the current practitioners rap bolted some overhanging choss heap, rehersed it, climbed it, did photo shoots on it, and treated it as commerce.

Selected Ice Conditions effective January 15, 2018
We are back in to the freezer after 2 daze of amazingly warm temps. Lots of climbs came down and were hurt, but after a solid day of well below freezing, things are rebounding well. If you're going out climbing this week, be prepared for anything. But also be prepared to be pleasantly surprised.

One Of Our Articles: A Climber's Library (part 1)
When I first began climbing I had no idea there was such a thing as climbing literature. A few years into it, I was hanging out with all these AMC types. It seemed they were all a hundred years old and knew a lot more than me. I made a fool of my self in a conversation when I admitted to not knowing who Fred Becky was
