The White Mountain Report: Dec 1st, 2016
Incredibly busy this week, so this will be short and sweet. I have been getting calls, texts, emails, PMs one Facebook, tweets (well maybe not tweets) all asking if there will be ice to climb this weekend. IMNSHO (in my not so humble opinion for the uninitiated) there will be NO ICE in the lower elevations this weekend! We have had 3 days of rain, totaling almost 3 inches, and what little was there on Monday, has been washed away. Sure there are fragments, but nothing that is safe in any way.

Petzl Connect Adjust

Petzl has come out with a new device for anchor attachment and to extend a rappel device for rappelling. Does it really make things easier, or is it just another finicky device that youll check out and then rarely use?

Selected Ice Conditions effective December 4, 2016
In the past few daze things have started firming up quite a bit. it was cold last night and chill all day, so that helped. Shoestring was soloed today, tho it's still quite thin. The Open Book in Tucks was done a day or 2 ago, but it was basically a solo as well. I'll have info about the lower elevations on Thursday, but my prediction is that if it stays this chill we could have some ice to climb by Saturday.
