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.

Quotes From the Ledge:
From Everest Base Camp, you can walk four hours and you're lounging on grass, drinking beer with trekkers. K2 stands absolutely on its own. The approach is hard. The base camp feels like the moon. The mountain itself looks utterly impregnable, and there's no easy way up the thing. And all this hits you between the eyes when you see it for the first time. It's like that famous Munch painting. You know the oneóThe Scream? Except, of course, you're the one doing the screaming.
—Jim Curran
