The White Mountain Report: Jan 18th, 2018
There is no question that the ice conditions have been in a state of flux for the past week. When I took my pictures last Thursday things were still pretty good. Needless to say that all changed starting Thursday night and continuing all day Friday. We got almost 4" of rain here in the Valley in 36 or so hours and the temps rocketed to almost 60 degrees Saturday morning.

Route of the Moment

Cauliflower Gully -  WI 2 II

2 pitches of nice gully climbing, providing a reasonable finish to any of the main climbs Mt. Willard. It tops out right at the top of the cliff, very near the overlook. While usually a Grade 2, it sometimes provides a nice Grade 3 bulge.

Selected Ice Conditions effective January 18, 2018
The rain brought down many climbs, for a minute. Then the flash-freeze brought many (but not quite all) of them back, plus some other interesting things as well. yes, for all practical purposes we did get a reset, but we're back to a good season again. It's a great time to get out there for some ice climbing folks...
