I recall learning up to December.  What's month #16?

If it's overhanging, I'm probably off-route.

Drove by the dike to ski at Cannon Sat morning and the dike looked like a CF. 2 parties on the route and 2 cued up at the base with one heading up.

I can't imagine attempting the Dike on a weekend as guaranteed crowded as MLK-- oh the HORROR!

Does anyone know if the floor of the Flume is in? Or if not, care to hazard a guess about whether it will be by Sunday?

thanks

I'd say until there's at least one big dump snow the floor of the flume will be open.

Climbed the Dike yesterday (1.23.15)
Was thin but fine. Not much pro on pitch two except all the fixed stuff (read: tons of pro on pitch two) :)
Pitch one didn't take any pro and pitch three was fat and picked out.
