Tucks head wall was fat and plastic today.  There was a manageable amount of running water but, temps were super cold.  I wouldn't expect the water to be running for long.  Traction is a must for the approach and descent.

tstorm: I'm up and down Pinkham 3-5 times per week (teaching skiing at wildcat) ; FWIW, from the road Icemen don't eat quiche looks like it took a bad hit from the rain and thaw last week

Pinnacle is fat and in great shape, as of 2 days ago. I would think damnation would be marginal since it's always in the sun now...

I climbed Damnation Today with a friend. I guess that was the last call (for me at least) ! If you go out there, watch out for falling ice ! Be safe.

You can see some pictures on my Flickr : https://www.flickr.com/photos/pekdeche/

Rode my bike from Gorham, up Randolph Hill and the across Dolly Copp to Rt 16 then back to Gorham today. The foliage was amazing. This is a perfect time for climbing anything right now up here in the Whites...

Light snow and rime I e on Mt Washington this week. It's been chilly up there. There is lots of water in the system, so I'm sure the ice will form when it's cold long enough. Winter is definitely on the way...

I've been seeing some cool pix of Pinnacle & Tucks. It looks like things are really starting to form up high. With some continuous cold, like what's predicted for next week, we should start to happen at Frankenstein as well.

Stay tuned...
