Well it's been a very busy week and honestly I haven't had got heck of a lot to say. On top of that I haven't been out this week 'cause I had something removed from my left forearm on Monday and was told not to climb, bike or ski until after the stitches come out next Wednesday. [ARRRGGGHHH] I'm the kind of person who needs regular exercise and so you can only imagine how frustrated I am right now! The only thing that's been keeping me sane is that I've been able to play the bass, but that's hardly aerobic - in spite of how energetic I am when I play! There have to be at least a few of you who can relate…
Anywho, there were lots of folks out climbing today. Here are a few pics of them:
The one on Repentance is pretty neat since I didn't notice the climber 'till I was home going through the shots. I wonder how often that happens to photographers?
You all know about the big dump of snow last week, well we had a few inches of unexpected powder on Tuesday night and now it looks as if another big storm is on the way. Although from the Mt Washington weather report you wouldn't know it, all the other services are predicting quite a dump Saturday night through Sunday morning.
Skiers and shopkeepers should be happy, not quite so sure about us homeowners who have to cleanup afterwards.
Ice Conditions Report:
Selected Ice Conditions effective March 6, 2014
While the ice is going through a bit of a change, what with the weather being so cold, it's still very good in most places. With the longer days and more intense sunlight we should start to see some refreshing going on, as soon as the temps moderate. Most climbs in the direct sun are starting to see a little water during the day, in spite of the cold. The stuff in the shade that's looking a bit beat up and that in the direct sun is a little pinky. That said, it looks as if this weekend things are going to moderate, so it should be a good one.
BTW I am aware that some of today's pix are of a decidedly poorer quality than we all are used to. This is because my main camera's battery pack died and I had to use my cell phone camera - sorry about that.

Climbing is a very dangerous sport. You can get hurt or even kill yourself. When you go climbing, you do so of your own free will. Everything on this site is to be taken with a grain of salt. Don't blame us if you get up some totally heinous route, in over your head and fall and hurt yourself.
