The White Mountain Report: Feb 15th, 2018
It's been a busy week and it's not going to slack off. A bunch of climbing, band rehearsals and music performances, plus a great bike ride up Hurricane Mountain Road. All in all it's the kind of week you want to do when the weather is changing to warm! It was 44 in the Valley on Thursday, 37 on Friday morning and it will get warmer on Friday, before it cools off at night. [YUCK] Hang on folks it may be a bumpy ride...

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

Selected Ice Conditions effective February 22, 2018
The ice took a YUGE hit over the past couple of daze. Not just in the lower elevations, but everywhere. It's pretty clear that winter isn't over, and March is often our snowiest month. So let's just muddle through this next couple of days and see what next week brings us. Many of the trade routes in Crawford Notch are in poor shape right now and need at least a couple of days and nights of cold temps to firm things up again. Still, there are some climbs to be done like Standard Route and Dracula, and even the North End of Cathedral has hung on. HOWEVER you really need to beware of what's above you now. There are hangers everywhere that will be coming down as soon as the sun comes out! I would stay away from everything left of Thresher on Cathedral, all the way to Goofers. And right now the Amphitheater at Frankenstein looks poor, most especially Chia with all those daggers. Keep your fingers crossed for come chill-down next week folks.
Huntington Ravine UNKNOWN but likely OK
