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 tunes… My ice predictions & observations are below.
Ice Conditions Report:
Selected Ice Conditions effective January 10, 2019
The weather event we had over the past 2 days really didn't seem to significantly impact the climbs, other than the fact that it wasn't cold at all for about 36 hours. That said, it was chilly Wednesday night and it's really going to be cold for the weekend. My guess is that things will be quite good, but likely very hard and somewhat brittle. In addition there is a LOT of very heavy snow out there folks. Climbs like Cinema, Shoestring and really anything where there is a snow-loading aspect should be avoided at least for several days. And since it's going to be in single digits at least overnight the next few days, protect early and often.
