Hi Folks,

Well once again "life has gotten in the way" of life. There is no real Report this week because all of my time was taken up with dealing with the effects of this site and forum crashing on Tuesday afternoon. It took 2 days of futzing around to get things back and running again. Thank god I was able to find a reasonably recent backup! Couple that with my regular Windows XP machine going belly up, the guitarist in my band announcing that he was leaving town in 2 weeks, it's been raining for 3 days and my wife and son being away in Wisconsin for a week...well you get the picture. And I thought that I was going to get a little vacation. [wry grin] Oh yeah, the program that I wrote that email's out the Report was on that machine that died. I have a backup of that as well, but not as handy as I would like.
Ice Conditions Report:
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.
Dracula OK Click to see route picture.

I could get all "antsy" about this kind of thing, but frankly it's simply not worth the effort. It's probably time to make a change in the band, I needed to reinstall the OS on my desktop machine and I guess that the site problems were a wakeup-call for making better and more frequent backups. No one got hurt in any of this, I was just a little inconvenienced and life will go on. Maybe it will make me appreciate the quiet times a little more. Hope you are having a great summer...

Mobile Version Of NEClimbs:
Up on one of the Mount Washington Valley's finest crags and want to know what that climb you're looking at is? Or maybe you're on your way up from Boston and want to check out the Ice Report for your upcoming weekend plans. Or more likely, you're at work just want to daydream about your next adventure. Well if you have a smart phone handy, you can get to NEClimbs from anywhere you have cell service. While it doesn't offer every single feature of the site and it's not an "app", in mobile form, it does do a whole lot and is very useful. Here is the live link to the mobile version of NEClimbs:
