The White Mountain Report: Apr 10th, 2014
My goodness, hasn't spring come on with a huge rush? We've gone from winter to full-on spring conditions and I'm excited! Sure, I love winter and ice season, but this has been a long one and frankly I'm ready for the change. One fortunate thing is that we haven't had the torrential rains that sometime accompany the switchover to warmer weather. We all have been expecting a big mud season, but that may not happen. My back yard has gone from 5+ feet of packed snow to under 3 feet and it's all soaking right into the ground. And so far the streams and rivers have just gradually risen, without the huge jams and blocks of ice that we got last year. You know what? I'll take it!

Jacob's Ladder -  5.10c

Nice climbing with a variety of situations. The first 2 pitches take you to the tree ledge and are only slightly harder than Hoter Than Hell or Cold Day In Hell.

Selected Ice Conditions effective April 12, 2014
As far as I am concerned the ice in the lower elevations is finished and all that's left for this year is up on Mt Washington. I am officially considering this year's ice season concluded for all practical purposes and this will be the last Ice report for this season. While there looks to be some ice in the pictures, trust me that in general it is not worth the effort and in many cases would be very dangerous to attempt to climb!
