Ice Update - January 13, 2017
Temps have been dropping all day Friday. It went from 44 at 5 AM, to 28 at 2:15 PM! The cold and the water we have in the system now should really stabilize things, assuredly allowing the ice to build again. In a way this is similar to March conditions where the warm days and chilly nights simply serve to fatten things up.

The main thing is to be aware of right now are the top-outs on all the climbs. On many climbs, for example Chia, the ice has been undermined at the top for weeks and even has pulled away from the top in places. It's always a good idea to protect well before the finish, but now it's critical. Just be aware folks!
