Mt Willard, 3/25/14

LHMW: Super Fat! Really.
Slabs Right: Plenty of ice, several lines to the top (maybe only one or two "preferred lines" through the upper chandeliered wall).  Some dripping water in that upper wall.  So, watch for weekend temps.
Upper Hitchcock: Plentiful and very good ice all the way to the top.  Snow at the bottom and on the terrace below the last steep bit where the first belay/rap station is.
East Slabs: didn't see much.  But the right most lower section, just adjacent to UH start is thin to none.
The Cleft: Lots of fun ice and snow the entire length.
Climbers Trails: All trails to and from these areas have well packed snow.  We wore crampons on the approach from the track below Hitchcocks, but they were not really necessary in the kicked in snow.
Elephants Head: looks great, including both left and right finishes, though maybe thinner finishes as often seen there.
It's Still Ice Season :)
