Richard, if you PM me, we can set up a meeting between you and your crew and the supposed "guide" and the revolution.

Ice & Winter Climbing / Snow cave?
« Last post by Coreshot on Yesterday at 06:16:20 PM »
So I've never done a winter traverse.  I'm kicking around the idea of an attempt since the ice has seen better days.  Is it reasonable to go without a tent and plan to spend a night in a snow cave?  Is there anything you think might make that night out a tad more bearable?  I'm planning on bringing a tarp, ,ground pad, 20 degree bag(I have bigger but hoping to trade comfort for less weight), and trekking poles

Forecast is totally grim too.  Seriously considering wearing out my current kit without cycling any new stuff in. The ice seasons are only going to get shorter.  Not worth the money IMO.

Wow.. We're in North Conway NH from February 3rd-23rd. Between the warm up in January and this latest global warming incident. I got a horseshoe up my ...

I hope March brings back winter for a couple weeks. I was just getting to the point where my leads were fast and I placed an amount of screws that would make Tradman proud.

Goofers and Unicorn fell down either last night or this morning! The bottom of Black Pudding is also down. I would be very careful around Cathedral as there is lots of ice up there in hidden places. DO NOT walk ANYWHERE under the cliff.

I also think it is probably a bad idea to go to the North End. I am confident that there is still ice there, but it is absolutely unbonded. If Thresher decides to let go, that will be catastrophic.

Anyone thinking about climbing rock at the North End cracks, please think again. There is a huge amount of ice up on the Unicorn Ledge just waiting to come down!!!

I feel like it's done, and that really blows hard. It's way to early for this crap.

wonder what fell down at the lake...... It would need to be 2 weeks of extra solid winter temps, like single digits or below zero at night and not above freezeing in daytime for me to even think about getting back on anything there... ........ Its not like early season where new ice is bonding to fresh rock unless the climb falls down and starts fresh.

It sure looks as if winter is trying desperately to make a comeback. ;-) It went from pouring rain at 10 PM, to 44 at 1 AM when I got home from my gig in Wolfeboro last night, now to 30, breezy and snow flurries at 9:45 AM. The water on the roads has now frozen into patches of black ice. With all the rain that we experienced on Friday and Saturday, it is a guarantee that things are fully undermined. SEVERE CAUTION is advised!

Several friends were in Crawford Notch yesterday and the telling quotes all revolved around the following statements:

"Most of Frankenstein is on the ground..."

"Dropline fell off and is on the tracks..."

"Intro to ice with 8 people in lost in the forest... Listening to walk is the woods rain down huge chunks all day."

"...Standard and Dracula are still standing..."
