Hi Folks,

It looks as if we're in for a great series of days right through Sunday afternoon, and with one possible exception straight into next week. There are no bugs to speak of, you can almost see the moisture being wicked off the cliffs and the roads are already dry. Plan your weekend such that you can be outside and enjoy yourselves as much as possible. Heck, it doesn't get a whole lot better than this.

Oh yeah - couple of asides:

1) Sunday is Easter so I hope that all of you enjoy the day in whatever form is appropriate to you.

2) I would avoid the Ethereal Buttress area until the blocks directly above it are trundled. When you see all the trees down in that area you'll understand what I mean!
Ice Conditions Report:
Selected Ice Conditions effective February 26, 2015
Yet another great week of ice pretty much everywhere. Surprisingly we haven’t had any snow to speak of in the lower elevations, so the trails are packed out and it’s easy to get around. It would be nice if things warmed up a bit during the day to refresh the ice tho. Just be aware that things are getting a bit beat up and brittle. That said there is a lot of stuff to climb. Enjoy…

The White Mountain Report
North Conway, New Hampshire


All ice is dangerous. Grade 4 pillars are pumpy. Grade 5 pillars are pumpy and dangerous. Except for certain rare days of triple-high biorythms and favorable planetary alignments, grade 6 is beyond reach.
