There will be a major race at Cannon this weekend with all the parking areas used by climbers being used by the ski area with shuttles running! This race is big enough that the lodge and most of the mountain will be closed to the public those 3 days.Here are links for more info:
The White Mountain Report: Mar 26th, 2015
I woke up this morning at 6 AM to bright sunlight and an almost balmy 34 degrees and by 8:30 it was almost 40! Thats an amazing change from what weve been experiencing for the past several months, and based on the weather predictions not at all what I expected. When I went to bed at 11 last night there was a huge green blob headed our way and I expected it to be raining this AM. Fortunately that was not the case, tho obviously things are starting to change, even as I write. So far weve managed to dodge the bullet, with regards to Spring thaws, but Im not so sure that will be the case from here on out. PS - at 12:15 its 48 degrees folks!!!!

Our Current Review
X4 Camelots
product  picture
The new X4 Camelots are BD's latest addition to their 4-camming device collection. They claim that they are great for everything from big-wall to your basic day-to-day trad climb. So do they hold up to expectations, can they be a replacement for the classic C4's, and how do they compare to the ever popular C3's?

Selected Ice Conditions effective March 26, 2015
There is still ice to climb in many places right now, but with the warm temps and rain coming thats going to change quickly over the next week. I would expect that the Frankenstein Amphitheater will become problematic pretty soon. Even as big and fat as Standard Route is, it is in the full sun all day so its getting beat up. Climbs like Dracula, the North End of Cathedral, Lost In The Forest, Upper Hitchcock and various things in the shade will last longer of course. Were moving into the best time for climbing on Mt Washington for the next 3-4 weeks. That said, its time to think about rock season folks.
