Hi Folks,

'...like a see saw baby, going up, down, all around, like a see saw - da da dum dum dum.' I don't know about you but I've felt as if I'm being jerked around on a string this past month. The ice is IN, it's OUT, it's OUT, it's IN. It reminds me of that old joke about cat Hiku: Wanna go outside. Oh, crap! Help! I got outside! Let me back inside! Just when you think it's safe to get on the ice, it's not. [sigh] Well regardless, the ice is IN right now.

I haven't had a lot to say the past couple of weeks over these holidays. Just too much family stuff and business to wind up and the like to have time for cogitation. Sorry 'bout that folks. Regardless I have gotten out for some personal climbing here & there and it's been a lot of fun. I just have to be sure to grab the fun days when I can & not put it off. Of course I always urge everyone in my family to make a New Year's resolution. "Don't put things off" is a popular one. But for all of us climbers I suggest "Do More Ice Climbing" for our New Year's Resolution. The ice is there for us, now let's just get out and enjoy it. Sounds an awfully similar to "Don't put things off", doesn't it?

Happy New Year
Ice Conditions Report:
Selected Ice Conditions effective November 18, 2014
Here we go folks. The Ice report is on line for the 2014/2015 season. I'm starting to see some good pix of stuff on the Mountain, the Dike has been done this week and it's starting to get cold even here in the Valley. With another week of consistently cold temps things should start to form quickly. Stay tuned...
