Apparently someone climbed a VERY thin Yale yesterday. If it stays cold things will be a lot better in several days.

well done on your prediction sir.  Maybe you can hire out your talents to the media to project the presidential race?

Any thoughts on conditions this weekend? Conditions post storm? Seems like everything will still be thin, kind of loose...

Saw the pics of the guys on Yale on NeIce, maybe things will be a little more built up?? Maybe??

I wouldn't count on it... as I understand it, temps are supposed to warm after the storm comes through

I rode my bike up through Pinkham today (Monday). from what I could see the ice had really taken a hit since Saturday. Central looked minimal and even Pinnacle didn't look good. This is really too early for climbable ice!

Too early? But if there is Ice and it is climbed? I'm confused. I always thought this was a site to promote climbing.

Yes I did but it was yesterday not last week.  Certainly a look listen and feel type of day more so than usual but never felt like I was getting away with anything.  No ice or rockfall.  Found some really good ice and some not so good. The ice was alive in spots and not there at all in others.  A lot of it resembled a lava lamp but never broke thru and did not bring down much.  Not too many hollow sounds either.  Got on rock in several spots by choice ditching the crampons and mixed it up in other spots.  Top was crappy snow and turf.  Saw fat ice in O'Dells and Pinnacle looked doable but not as a solo for me.  Hiked down in a t-shirt after the top of Lion's Head.  Look forward to winter and snow for the hoof out.
If things get cold again quick and stay cold the ice should build quickly with the snow, rain and brief warmth we have had.  Enjoy.
