| There is still ice to climb in many places right now, but with the warm temps and rain coming thatís going to change quickly over the next week. I would expect that the Frankenstein Amphitheater will become problematic pretty soon. Even as big and fat as Standard Route is, it is in the full sun all day so itís getting beat up. Climbs like Dracula, the North End of Cathedral, Lost In The Forest, Upper Hitchcock and various things in the shade will last longer of course. Weíre moving into the best time for climbing on Mt Washington for the next 3-4 weeks. That said, itís time to think about rock season folks.
