My friend Max climbed Goofers this morning at 8 and said it was still quite good in spite of the rain last night.

 the ice actually grew nicely. the rock and existing ice was so cold that the rain froze on contact.

Repentence and Remission are toast. The ice was super soft and the slab at the north end was a waterfall, but colder temps on the way should bring things back.

rode my mountain bike (with studded tires) down to the North End for a bit this morning to get in one quick climb before I leave for LA tomorrow morning. I thought that the pillars, slab and Thresher were all in great shape. I didn't have time to check out Repentance and Remission but Diagonal still looked good too. things are gong to get better very fast.

30 mph gusts of wind, -9 degrees last night with a wind chill of -20! It ain't nothing but COLD. Lots of tree limbs and worse everywhere. Be careful out there folks. There is no room for error!

Almost 70 degrees and sunny today, warmer tomorrow, then a big rain on Tuesday. Spring is here.

FYI Goofers fell down on Friday.

Does anyone think Cathedral or Whitehorse will be good to go by next week? Both looked a bit damp yesterday as I drove through on my way up to Pinkham, but I'm hoping with some warm temps they'll clear up quickly.

the South Buttress of Whitehorse is good to go now. from what I can tell no ice up there at all. the trail is pretty crappy tho. the slab area is treacherous for sure and I'd stay away for another week, or until we get another good rain. Some of Cathedral is probably OK, or will be very quickly. that said the North End will be a death trap. there is a ton of stuff on the Unicorn Ledge and in the Repentance & Remission chimneys. the center area at Humphrey's is in excellent shape now.
