Conditions

11-26-14

The season is finally kicking off in the valley and many of the classics are in great shape. Its been nice and cold, but it does appear there is a warming trend coming over the next couple days which could effect the south facing climbs. I am posting conditions as of what I saw over the last few days.

ASSUMPTION OF RISK AND RESPONSIBILITY Each climber is responsible for his own safety and this site and specifically the condition page should only be used as a reference guide to the South Fork. The information on this page is current as of the date above and conditions and temperatures can change dramatically day to day.

  • Just spent a couple days staying at the double d and here’s what we did: main vein: first, and most other pitches are ‘t in. Its alot snow slogging for 2 pitches of real ice. The last crux pitch is sun rotten and super chanderlied.
    Moratorium: super fat and sinker plastic.
    High on boulder /moonrise: bring an extra set of shoes, you get to wade the river! Crux pitch on moonrise was absoulte sinker plastic ice. Rest of both routes had great ice.
    Miami ice: we found the far right side to have a stash of great plastic ice, although it wont last long with the warm temps, cheers.
