The White Mountain Report: Mar 15th, 2018
Let it snow, snow, snow... And it has. So in a little more than 10 days we've had 3 big storms come through, dropping a pant-load of white stuff. Tho the Valley itself seemed to dodge the proverbial bullet this time around, everywhere around us got pretty clobbered. I measured a paltry 5" here by the Ledge, while Madison apparently got close to 2' and even Stark Road in Center Conway got 18! Go figure.

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.

Quotes From the Ledge:
Breaking into a new area of climbing while remaining safe is probably sort of like practicing religion. There's no best way to do it, and if you screw up, you're going down...

Selected Ice Conditions effective March 15, 2018
Last week there was almost nothing worth climbing except for the North End of Cathedral, some stuff on Mt Willard and a few scrappy obscure climbs here & there. It's a bit better this week, and maybe there is some shine to the late-season-ice tunnel. The big climbs have even been building somewhat. especially in the shade. The Frankenstein Amphitheater is still a wreck, but Standard and Dracula are looking fairly good. Tho the left side of Willard is not back, there are lots of options on the right-hand side.
