Willoughby

went up to Willoughby on Friday. the conditions were great & it was totally a bluebird day. there were lots of groups & guides and we did Glass Menagerie. most excellent. check out the shot on the Instant Ice Report popup. looks to be a good season up there.

BTW - I noticed that there were a couple of folks parking at the Boulders. this is a no parking area & you can get towed so be aware!

Plus, it jeopardizes access. Let's be considerate of the locals and park legally.

I was at Willo on 12/31. Smoky and dissonant day, only one other party there, very beautiful. We climbed Promenade which was TBI. Gent was looking a little old and haggard with a rock start, WW is far from touching. ROT is TBI but could definitely be done. Fun day!

thanks Sparky. it was a great day to be climbing. GM is a awesome climb.

re the new guide. it's not at the printers yet. <sigh> maybe it will be out before ice season is over. who knows.

hopefully we'll be selling it right here as soon as it comes out. stay tuned.

Not at the printers??   :-/
I have a Christmas copy reserved already. Bummed to hear it's not even printed yet. I would like to get up to Wiloughby again someday. Climbed there 1 time on the tablets. It has been 10 years and I have fond memories of the enormity of the Ice there.
20 below has been a long time goal. Someday...
