You got a while before you can climb at either of those places. This time of the year is the worst at either of those places, at night things are still freezing and in the day thawing. This means a lot of rockfall. Just last saturday there was an avanlanche on the talus field below Cannon. And a couple weeks ago people where climbing ice in Huntington. Better off to go climb at cathedral or whitehorse.

I'm with Jay on this one. those places are wicked dangerous right now. there are plenty of dry places to climb where you don't have to worry 'bout rock fallin' on your punkin head. <grin>

The flatiron area in Franconia Notch has been climbed since early March by some locals.  Some routes are in the Sykes guide.  Nice and sunny up there.  Check it out.

When is Cannon generally safe to climb?  I remember climbing Moby Grape in early june.  Is it ready to go before that?
 What about the conditions at Echo crag?

I was up on cannon about two weeks ago.  whitney gilman is clean and dry but everything else was either wet or snowy.

the approach, up until the talus, was very snowy and wet.  stupidly i went it with tennis shoes...cold cold cold.  

i'd be prepared for a little snow on the approach just in case.

i know that standard on white horse is climbable but seriously doubt that huntington is...
