Was wandering around eagle cliff 2/11.  Got a good look at garcia-vega, soiled
not foiled.  Looked quite healthy for anyone interested.

did hassig's yesterday, the ice was great. just about the same as the photo in the routes section of this site. the last pitch was a hookfest.

the biggest challenge of the day was breaking trail through hip-deep snow leading up to the dike.

Was thinking of doing one or two of the longer routes up Cannon Cliff - looks like the weather's gonna be nice!  Anyone know how the climbing conditions are post storm and all?

The Flume floor is in as of today. From the road the Black Dike looked iceless.

How's Cannon beginning to look for rock climbing?  I'm thinking of climbing some routes the weekend of May 4th / 5th? 

Thanks,

Has anyone been in to Echo Crag - I understand it is often wet in spring, but this has been a dry spring.

I was at Echo yesterday and most of the climbs are dry.  There are two popular climbs with lots of water on them, Cooler Sacrifice and the face climb that is to the right of The Shield.

Not too surprising that there was ice on Canon on Thursday morning!  ;D  Thanks to Dereck Tremblay for the picture.
