Hi Folks,

As I will be away for 5 days over Christmas I figured I would get this brief Report out before I left. I want to take this opportunity to wish all of you and your families a most wonderful Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, Winter Solstice or whatever holiday you choose to celebrate. My personal wish for each of you is for health, happiness, peace and some ice.

May we all see those in our lifetimes.
Ice Conditions Report:
Selected Ice Conditions effective November 29, 2015
Ben Maxwell was in Tucks on Sunday and said there were a couple of reasonable lines.. I got an email from fellow guide Matt Shove who was up in Huntington Saturday. He climbed rock and said that in his opinion the ice on the mountain "has been set back to Zero!" and not 5 minutes later I saw a post her on FB by Ben Maxwell and Joe Cormier saying that they climbed 3 pitches of ice in Tucks Saturday. Needless to say that was ribbons of ice, in-between dirt and grass, but apparently it WAS ice! And then Paul McCoy posted 2 pix of what looked surprisingly like ice somewhere on the mountain. So, I have to assume that while there IS ice to be climbed, it's still fairly minimal. So there you have it...

Writing about climbing is boring. I would rather go climbing.
