Anyone know if the stream at Flume is adequately frozen to access the climbing? Or generally, how cold how long does it need to be?

Drove through Franconia Notch this morning. The middle of the Dike is gone; Fafnir is more of a hint, a hallucination of an ice climb than an ice climb. Strangely, the top half of Omega looked as good as I've ever seen it, tho' I've only seen it a couple of times. Even the column in the middle had touched down. Of course, the first half was non-existent. oh well.

believe it or not Peter Doucette & partner Adam climbed Omega today very early in the morning. while not "fat" it certainly looked climbable. he said that while it was IN in the AM, it was not by early afternoon!

Funny just came here to post that while driving up through the notch this morning there was a line left of Omega that looked like it went top to bottom, Omega looked "in," and the dike had ice from top to bottom. I thought I was seeing things!

Edit: After looking at the report on neice I wonder if I got confused and the big line top to bottom was Omega. If so there was a line right of Omega (what I always thought was Omega) that was thick at the top and really thin at the bottom. In any case there was certainly a lot of ice on Cannon for this time of year!
