The White Mountain Report: Feb 11th, 2016
WOW, what a weekend. In fact, what a week it was. We went through about every scenario that you could, in a bare 7 day period. Ending of course with the huge WHEWWWW exclamation when we all realized that Ice Fest 2016 was actually going to happen as planned! Just in case you were living under a rock, what Im talking about was the amazing warmup and rain we had only a few days right before the weekend. Right down to the wire, Thursday, temps were in the mid-40s and the water was pouring everywhere. Talk about a shock to the system!

X4 Camelots
product  picture
The new X4 Camelots are BD's latest addition to their 4-camming device collection. They claim that they are great for everything from big-wall to your basic day-to-day trad climb. So do they hold up to expectations, can they be a replacement for the classic C4's, and how do they compare to the ever popular C3's?

Selected Ice Conditions effective February 11, 2016
For the most part the ice is IN almost everywhere. Some places are still thin and the top-outs are not always great, but if you can climb, there is stuff for you to do. Some of the climbs in the Frankenstein Amphitheater are problematic as of today, but with the cold that is expected for the weekend, that may change pretty quickly.
