The White Mountain Report: Mar 21st, 2019
So it's "officially" Spring. Last night was a major full moon and the sun is now much stronger than it has been for months. With Daylight Savings Time now in force it's light much later, tho now the dark of night is hanging on a bit later in the morning. But at least it has finally started to make all of us feel as if we will get through this very long winter at last.

Do we really need another guidebook for the White Mountains? From what I see I would have to answer that in the affirmative!

Route of the Moment

Hitchcock Gully -  WI 3 II

A classic gully climb, with a twist. The crux of pitch 1 is a short mixed section that's about 5.5. Great fun...

Selected Ice Conditions effective March 21, 2019
It's been a wonderful ice season, but Spring is officially here folks. Thus the sun is strong so it's warm during the day, but it's cold at night. And of course that means that climbs in the full sun are crap, but anything in the shade can still be good and maybe even building a bit. Sure, Standard Route is still massive, but the ice isn't all that good IMO. I was up there today and thought the ice above the cave was punky! Climbs in the reflector oven that is the Amphitheater are a mess now and honestly in my mind it's not a smart place to be. We're entering a time when the best climbing will be up high in the Ravine. And of course the longer days make it a great time to be up there. From here on out I'm only going to be posting pictures of things I think are in climbable shape, and that's a dwindling supply.
