The White Mountain Report: Apr 16th, 2015
Although many of us thought that it was never going to happen, weíve finally moved fully into Spring. There isnít any ice in the lower elevations, and whatís up higher is going fairly fast. Itís surprising that we arenít even experiencing a real mud season this year. Something about the way the air has been dry and warm and we havenít had any rain has made for things to just almost sublimate away. Itís actually been very neat to see the snow in the woods just evaporate.

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?

Nobody climbs mountains for scientific reasons. Science is used to raise money for the expeditions, but you really climb for the hell of it.

Sure the ice season is winding down, but there's still some reasonable ice to be found - even on April 9!

Selected Ice Conditions effective April 17, 2015
I know, I know there are some folks who will say that this or that climb is still IN, but believe me there really is no safe ice in the lower elevation now, so the rating has been dropped to a 1. This indicates that the only ice is in the higher terrain now. And in fact, other than climbs that have some significant part of them in the shade, like Pinnacle, everything else should be considered suspect. That said the skiing is supposedly amazing right now so grab it while you can. Starting next week we will move fully into rock season and will switch to BugCON ratings.
