Wanting to avoid normal places that might be crowded I headed up and climbed Big Slide today - with two friends coming off the couch. Three easy pitches of very nice soft ice, a couple hundred feet neve section and then the nice pitch at the top that went easy 3.
Stuff to the right of Big Slide looked good.
Ace looked ok but possibly delaminated a bit.
Black Dike though binoculars - well, it's got ice and I'm sure some people would say "in good" but I've certainly seen it with more ice. At 2:30 one party was leading the second pitch runnel. I'm sure it was a headlamp descent.
