Hi Folks,

HmmmÖ Is it still, winter, spring, to some twisted combination of all of the previous? While I would dearly love to be able to call it Spring, with a capital ďSĒ, itís a really tough call. Itís been cold at night, but warm in the day. Weíve had some rain, but probably not unity. The cliffs are pretty darn clear of ice and water, but there is still some snow here & there in places tie wouldnít expect. But honestly, itís all good.

Oh yeah, did I say that there arenít any bugs out there right now? Do I need to say it again, probably not! Iíve gotten out a couple of times, and itís all been good. A sunny afternoon on Beginners Route that restated my belief that climbing slab for the first time in a season gets you in the right state of mind. Dropping a rope over Little feat at the top of Cathedral to see how my fingers feel in a crack. And of course running a bunch of laps with friends on the short face climbs at the Wall Of The Hurley Morning Light at the top of Cathedral. Leading the crack corner and a couple of the bolted lines just to make sure my head is back into the game. With everything else thatís going on in my life - music, cycling, family and getting tech house in shape after winter - climbing has taken a second seat, but thatís OK. The cliffs are still there, the friends willing to get out and the days are feeling warmer and more wonderful. All in all, itís all good. Stay tuned, I think itís going to be a great summer.

Ice Conditions Report:
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.
