The White Mountain Report: Nov 14th, 2019
Just like all of you, I too have been looking forward to the 2019-2020 ice season. I've been watching the weather come across country with anticipation for the past week or two. I have friends and ex-in-laws in Michigan and Wisconsin and they have already gotten lots of cold and snow, and we've been a little behind. But on Sunday the cold & white appeared and Voila...it's winter!

Selected Ice Conditions effective November 14, 2019
Certainly the ice is forming, and by some folks standards there is some stuff that's climbable. But honestly I don't think I could call anything IN at this stage of the game. Yes I climbed Standard Route to the cave today, but by most standards (sic) it was desperate. I've talked to people who have climbed in the Ravines this week, and their opinions are similar. In another 5 days or so, if it stays cold, there will be some reasonable stuff to climb. Unless you feel VERY comfortable basically soloing very thin ice and slush, give it a bit more time.

One Of Our Articles: A Climber's Library (part 1)
When I first began climbing I had no idea there was such a thing as climbing literature. A few years into it, I was hanging out with all these AMC types. It seemed they were all a hundred years old and knew a lot more than me. I made a fool of my self in a conversation when I admitted to not knowing who Fred Becky was
