Title: Huntington
Post by: Admin Al on November 11, 2012, 08:31:33 PM
Apparently it was a good weekend for climbing on Mt Washington. on Saturday there were parties pretty much everywhere. Thanks to my friend Steve Jacques for this picture of a party on Pinnacle. He and his buddy did Central and they said that there were parties on almost everything.

Ice season is on its way folks...

much of what was there on Saturday is now gone. I rode my bike up over Pinkham today and was surprised to see how much had melted away in just 2 days.

I wouldn't be surprised if a bit of it was baking out. Some stuff was shedding by 12:30 sat in Tucks. I can't imagine the last couple of days helped it any... hoping for a cold front.... got a taste for the ice on Saturday and i don't want to have to  wait for another bite.

I was on my bike, so yes - it was from the road. however it looked quite different from the weekend. not to mention that it was 65 degrees and sunny...

Well, if you want to update your caption from unknown..  My name is Courtney Ley and my partner is Joel Dashnaw (belaying).  Known parties are much better than unknown ones.. I like to know about all the parties!

Third weekend of ice climbing this season is in the books.

I got a couple more pics of you and Joel, Courtney. They are sort of the same, if you want them let me know.
What a day it was out there!
Thanks,
