Hi Folks,

So sorry folks, no White Mountain Report this week. It's New Hampshire Motorcycle Week and I'm over the top with music gigs in and out of town. I got to bed this morning at 2 AM and heading out in about an hour for an out of town date. But, I promise I'll be right back on it again next week. meanwhile, enjoy this absolutely wonderful weather for as long as it lasts.
Ice Conditions Report:
Selected Ice Conditions effective February 25, 2021
It really does feel a little more like mid-March than late February right now, tho this really has to do with a couple of sunny days with temps in the 40's. Of course that's not really a bad thing, as long as it stays cool at night and we don't get any rain. But stay tuned... In general tho the ice is in good shape right now, with a few exceptions where the climbs have been in full sun over the past couple of warm days. The thing to be aware of is that there are places where the ice is punky and snowcone-like or has become undermined. But as long as you are paying attention, you'll be OK. Frankly early to mid-March is really my favorite time to climb. There's nothing like those longer days, more moderate temps and plastic ice. And the occasional warm day when you can get out on some warm early-season rock! What's not to like?

PS if you're in town check out Ed Webster's show at IME tonight at 7. I'm sure it will be fantastic. Cheers... Al

The rules of the game must be constantly updated to keep up with the expanding technology. Otherwise we overkill the classic climbs and delude ourselves into thinking we are better climbers than the pioneers.
