The White Mountain Report: Mar 19th, 2020
Oh boy... So as you all know, we are now in the middle of an unprecedented time in our lives, perhaps in human history. The pandemic COVID-19 virus has spread across the world, invisibly infecting people everywhere. It makes no difference where it came from, or distinction between races or political parties. It is NOT a "Chinese Virus", it IS a global virus. There is no room for blame on anyone or anywhere. The ONLY thing for us to do, is to take whatever measures are needed to address it NOW.

Quotes From the Ledge:
Climb if you will, but remember that courage and strength are naught without prudence, and that a momentary negligence may destroy the happiness of a lifetime. Do nothing in haste; look well to each step; and from the beginning think what may be the end.
—Edward Whymper, 1865, the first ascent of the Matterhorn

Selected Ice Conditions effective March 27, 2020
The ice is done and I am no longer issuing reports. I had someone text me personally asking about the status of ice in the Ravines. Even if I know something, I am no longer going to answer those questions. IMO it is irresponsible to be climbing, other than maybe on a top-rope at this time. I know it's beautiful out there right now. I GET IT! But climbing is generally a group, or at least duo, activity. Everyone touches everything. And if I touch something of yours, that means I have touched everything that you have come in contact with for the past 14 days. I love climbing and the group dynamic as much as anyone, but climbing right now is simply not worth the risk. You simply cannot guarantee that you are 100% safe and put everyone in jeopardy.
