Washington, Crawford, Willard
« on: December 19, 2015, 08:21:29 PM »
Pretty bad out there. Climbed Washington yesterday and didn't put microspikes on until the lower summit parking lot (conditions were quite different today and parties needed traction MUCH lower on the mountain). Today went through Crawford. Nothing looked "scratch-able" but I know one party basically "rock climbed" LHMW to the Cleft. Seriously, zero ice. I hear Cleft is quite stout as a rock climb. Both Silver & Flume flowing hard but trying to grow some ice. A few days of cold would be nice. Doesn't look like that's going to happen. Some pics in to my blog, link in sig.
