The White Mountain Report: Dec 6th, 2018
Well, weather-wise it's been an eventful week. But after all, it's still early December and not even officially winter yet, so what can we realistically expect? With lower-elevation ice actually available to be climbed, I'm actually feeling pretty good about the season so far. Plus, even tho we had a veritable deluge a couple of days ago, it's going to be quite cold over there weekend so things should build somewhat quickly.

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

Quotes From the Ledge:
If I have learned one thing in my 54 years, it is that it is very good for the character to engage in sports which put your life in danger from time to time. It breeds a saneness in dealing with day to day trivialities which probably cannot be got in any other way, and a habit of quick decisions.

Selected Ice Conditions effective December 6, 2018
While there is ice to be climbed, it's still not really in great shape. Lots of stuff is delaminated and the top outs on many climbs look dicey. Definitely bring your old picks and protect early and often. Remember, it's still Fall!!!
