Drove through... lots of folks seen on Standard... having climbed at Franks 2 days ago I can say Smear and Pegasus are fat and hooked, Hobbit upper is hard... Trestle and Lost in Woods fat (but lots of snow), Standards Left, Center, and Right is FAT and hooked... Penguin is in excellent shape, Dracula is FAT and very hooked/stepped on both right & left sides... Elephant Head Gully still great on right exit... assuming Hitchcock/LHMW/East Slabs all excellent... Cinema probably still OUT, Gully 1 maybe ok....

Climbed there yesterday. Everything was great. Chia ramp was a bit baked and some screws were a bit hollow in the amphitheater as expected. Dracula, Standard, Waterfall, Walk in the Forest were all in great condition. We cut trail to Smear but I was unsure of the heavy slab above. It looked like it was still up there, so we passed that one up.
Good times. Good climbs. Get out there, get after it, and most of all enjoy it.

Things are packing down nicely on the snowmobile trails so the riding is good right now...

Al is more a biker than a skier--hence his response on riding!
