Some friends were in Tucks on Sunday and tried to climb Hillman's. While there was some ice, there was a lot of running water and they felt it was unsuitable.

Drove up to Crawford Notch this morning. There was ice forming here and there, but definitely nothing climbable. I took a mountain bike ride up Sawyer River Road and by the time I got back to the car at 1 pm it was 45 degrees! Cold at night, but just too warm in the daytime.

It's getting colder again on the Mountain and some ice is starting to reform. I saw a video from Matt Bowman from Friday on Hillman's Highway. It looked very scratchy, but there was ice, albeit with a lot of running water. I guess if you are just really into it, and prepared to be taking your tools for a walk, it could be worth doing. That is if you are also prepared to just come home. Stay tuned 'cause it's getting cold over the next few daze.

Looks like Pinnacle was climbed yesterday:

yes, in spite of being a thin snowy mess, it seems to be getting a bunch of traffic. and from what Matt Bowman says, the approach is pretty bad.
