The White Mountain Report: Jan 19th, 2017
I'd like to be here saying that we've got a 5 star season and that stuff has formed that almost never comes in and that it's the best season in many years. However, while things aren't terrible, they aren't totally great either. Stuff that doesn't get a whole lot of sun, like Standard Route and Dracula, are pretty good, or maybe even great. However, stuff that gets sun, like the Frankenstein Amphitheater, is mediocre at best. Pick your climbs carefully grasshopper...

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?

Route of the Moment

Children's Crusade -  5.9

Truly a classic climb. That said, the first pitch, with it's tricky mantle-move and widely spaced protection, is somewhat of a sandbag. Not really a 5.9 for 5.9 leaders!

Selected Ice Conditions effective January 19, 2017
It's yet another mild day here in the Valley at 39 degrees, and even up in Crawford Notch where it was 34! The ice is OK in some places, but not overall good yet. For instance the Frankenstein Amphitheater is marginal, while Standard and Dracula are great. We need several days of seriously cold temps for things to settle in, Top outs on many climbs are poor, so protect where you can!
Huntington Ravine very good, check the avalanche danger  
Repentance being climbed Click to see route picture.
Standard Route very good, several options Click to see route picture.
Dracula IN, both sides good Click to see route picture.
