holy moly folks... it doesn't look for him good at all!

I guess that tells you the state of things in the ravines. regardless of what some folks say about how great things are right now, honestly I think ice season is OVER!

Honestly Al I'm not sure at all what this accident in Tucks has to do with ice conditions in Huntington.

 the photos from hunnington in the last week or so on NEICE look absolutly stunning.   het the ice is even blue in many of them. Certainly does not mean you don't have to keep your eyes open for crevasses though Tucks has a much greater history of that sort of thing than Hunnington.

I climbed Pinnacle on Sunday.  The ice is indeed blue in some places.  However, the right side of the first pitch was super hollow.  Halfway up the second pitch there was a small hole(basketball sized) and water rushing below the ice. 

We found the hiking to be the hardest part of the day.  It was snowing onto icy trails.  The hike out was real slow.   We saw the rescue guys on their way up.  I can't believe they didn't find the dude :o.  Total bummer.

Crevasse may not be the good terms as it can be use as an glacier crevasse. althought some snow can stay true july, and some poeople died last year or before, we can not thought about a crevasse.

climbing may not be the good term also, as he hike. But grade two or three is climbing.

Nevertless I appology for that post, even if I thought that it is not climbing, we can be trap as climber if we walk down tuck after a climb/hike in huntington.

Al, Did you move this a year later on purpose? I know the OP wasn’t in the right forum but moving it now makes it appear to be a new post, which could lead to some confusion (I know posts are dated but you know)... maybe it was to draw attention to the hazard as we move towards Spring up there or just routine maintenance?

EDIT: I see moving it doesn’t bump it in the topic forum, like my post did, but a moved topic appears in “un-read posts” since last visit... sorry I bumped this...

I heard that someone will gave a course: safety travel on avalanche ground. The idea was to eye ball the site of avalanche to understand the avalanches path and the bed bottom of them.  Could be good to gave some information about crevasses and snow bridges.

Is it you dman?. I recommand it as a new innovative idea.  It iss time to registter, the course will begin the end of may.
