IceCON 5. Superb New England ice climbing. Even many of the climbs that form rarely are IN.
5 out of a possible 5
The White Mountain Report: Feb 14th, 2019
The IceCON rating is back to a 5, we got 7-12 inches of heavy snow and the temps aren't all that cold. So what's not to like? Not much really, as long as you don't have to rake or shovel your roof. HA... But the ice is in great shape as long as you can safely get to it.

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

White Mountain Route Database and Guide

Route of the Moment

Barking Dog Crag -  WI 3

This is really an area, not a single climb. There are numerous flows, runnels and pillars in the woods all over the area between this and Black Pudding, none really named. The right side is a great place to take a small group as top ropes can be easily set up either by climbing the large flow or walking around on the right.

Selected Ice Conditions effective February 14, 2019
The ice is in great shape right now and even after the snow/warm-up we just had, darn near everything is IN! We've been VERY fortunate this year all the way around. I'm hoping that we continue down this same path for the remainder of the season, tho with a bit less snow! I bumped the IceCON rating back up to a 5 this week, so get out there and enjoy it.
