Went up to Crawford Notch this AM (1/02/2015) full on winter storm, cold, windy and visibility no greater than 200'. The parking lot was full and the snow was building up so we went to Frankenstein.
Frankenstein was only getting a light snow with reduced wind speeds which led to sun in the afternoon and almost no wind.
Standard, Pegasus rock finish, Standard, Trestle Cut, Practice Slabs, The Penguin, Dracula right side, Waterfall, Walk in the Forest, and Lost in the Forest were all being climbed as were some other lesser known dribbles of ice. The last column of ice on Pegasus The Rock Finsh before you get on the rock was in harder than usual conditions. The same could be said of Penguin. Dracula left was very wet but the right was in good condition. Dropline was about 2/3 formed.
It was busy! Boy when you are retired you forget about these holiday weekends. We only did one climb but did walk to and talk to the folks that did the climbs. Will go back next week when the traffic thins out.
Hope this helps.
Have a great New Year!
