The White Mountain Report: Dec 13th, 2018
Before you look at the pictures I took today, and read the Report that I wrote when I got home, please take a minute to consider the time and effort it took and how useful it is to you. It takes a major commitment on my part to do this each and every week. Always making sure that it's done on Thursday's so that you will have the information you need to make your plans for the coming weekend.

Selected Ice Conditions effective December 13, 2018
Amazingly there is a LOT of ice to be climbed in the lower elevations. While all of the routes at Frankenstein aren't IN yet, lots are. And certainly enough that you have many options. Honestly, the Amphitheater is the one place lacking at this time, but that's really not all that surprising. And you can do the Pegasus Rock Finish if nothing else. As the little convection oven that it is, it always takes longer at the start and goes quicker at the end of the season.
