Did LHMW, Upper Hitchcock and East Face Slabs yesterday; see photo links below.  Had headed into Kinsman earlier in the AM, but really nothing to be had there where, according to my partner, there was climbable ice one week ago (see Southern Whites thread for Kinsman photos).

Drove through the Notch today. Definitely ice season is here in my book. Penguin 2nd Pitch is happening, Hobbit & rock finish Pegasus getting done, Dracula is in 4+ condition.... 1st pitch of Snotsicle looks great, I'll be looking at that closely tomorrow... We climbed Elephants Head at 4pm... full screws right to the top.
