Amazingly enough there was ice climbed on Mt Willard today!!!

Matt Bowman climbed LH Monkey Wrench and the Cleft this morning. you can see a video here:

Check out the chockstone! With the predicted rain for the next couple of daze it's probably going to be gone pretty quickly. However we are now finally getting water in the system!

That was Madison Gulf on Sunday. Much fatter than what we were expecting. It's probably in even better shape now for anyone willing to brave the bushwhacks. That hike off to the ridge was heinous.

Here's a broader shot of the area. I'd be checking this spot out more frequently if it wasn't such a pain in the ass to get to.

You're all wrong. This is a colorized photo of The Black Dike in winter 1938. Case closed.

I was the one in the first photo and can corroborate Grubbers' claim. Y'all are dense.

Not that it's never happened, but I've never seen rime on the trees at Frankenstein.

Wow, that first shot really does look like a super fat Standard... serious resemblance!

I've never seen trees on the top of the second pitch, and never seen frost on trees at Frankenstein.

that said that does resemble the cave.
