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 January 19, 2017
It's yet another mild day here in the Valley at 39 degrees, and even up in Crawford Notch where it was 34! The ice is OK in some places, but not overall good yet. For instance the Frankenstein Amphitheater is marginal, while Standard and Dracula are great. We need several days of seriously cold temps for things to settle in, Top outs on many climbs are poor, so protect where you can!
Huntington Ravine very good, check the avalanche danger  
Repentance being climbed Click to see route picture.
Standard Route very good, several options Click to see route picture.
Dracula IN, both sides good Click to see route picture.

Enjoy your spring...

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:

The White Mountain Report
North Conway, New Hampshire


The solitary ascent of the Dru had the immediate effect of expanding the horizons of my ideas about mountaineering. It made me aware of possibilities well in advance of the times, which were characterized by very restricted mothods. This was how the suberb pyramid of K2 surfaced once more in the list of my projects. But I chose K2 as a way for giving concrete form to my new concept of mountaineering: to climb the second highest montain in the world solo, alpine style, and without oxygen.
