Hi Folks,

Unfortunately I've got no time to write a full-on Report this week. Between school vacation week, family mini-vacation and 2 solid days of recording sessions life has been too busy to climb, much less write. That's why I'm blasting this out now, before it gets even MORE crazy as the weekend approaches. This is the first time this season that I haven't been able to get out climbing in the early part of the week. ARRRGGGHHH! Well at least I'm having fun - yee ha! With any sort of luck at all I should be back with a Report next week. Stay tunesÖ My ice predictions & observations are below.
Ice Conditions Report:
Selected Ice Conditions effective November 26, 2015
While there certainly have been folks climbing early season ice in the upper elevations, and on occasion in places like the Black Dike, even that is barely IN - if you would call it that. The best ice Iíve seen has peen the pix my friend Matty send me of Tucks on the 24th. Everything in the lower elevations isnít really close at all. With temps up to 50 in Crawford Notch this morning, and fluctuating all over the place this weekend, including some rain on Friday, Iím not too confident in the idea that much in the way of ice making will be taking place. If you want to take a hike up on the Mountain with the idea that a hike is possibly all it may be, then thatís a great idea. Otherwise Iíd give it another week or so.
