The White Mountain Report: Feb 4th, 2016
Im going to make this short and sweet because my phone is ringing off the hook, my text messages are filling up and my email basket is overflowing. Everyone wants the answer to the question; IS THERE ICE? And the answer, after a day of rain, a night of temps in the 40s and a morning of temps in the upper 40s (even up in the Notches) is a resounding YES VIRGINIA, THERE IS ICE. And YES THERE WILL BE AN ICE FEST!!!!!

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 February 4, 2016
In spite of the rain and warmup, there is still ice to be climbed in the Valley and Notches. Some additional caution is required after an event like this, but with reasonable care you should have stuff to climb this weekend. All of the larger climbs are still there and by mid-day Friday and Saturday should be good to go. Just place plenty of pro, check for bonding and beware of some of the top-outs and all should be good. For the time being I personally would NOT go under Repentance or Remission!
Huntington Ravine UNKNOWN, probably climbable  
Repentance OUT Click to see route picture.
Standard Route still OK Click to see route picture.
