North East Ice

Discussion turns to climate change regularly in the courtyard at Hermit Lake. Max Bond will be presenting his study that used machine learning analysis to "backcast" avalanches to 1950 to look for changes brought by a warming climate.

Join him on Zoom to see the results. Mark your calendar for Nov. 30 at 7pm.

We'll post a Zoom link on the Events Calendar on the MWAC website.

North East Ice

Effective midnight Friday, October 16, all Katahdin and Traveller trails will be closed at their trailheads in an effort to protect natural resources above treeline. These trails will be closed until December 1, the start of the winter season, or later if freeze-thaw cycles continue to render alpine plant communities vulnerable to greater impacts from hikers. Accumulating snow expected Saturday will obscure trail markings, which contributes not only to issues of natural resource protection but also hiker safety. Gates will be closed on the South Branch Pond Road and Roaring Brook Road at the Sanctuary Line.

Lower elevation trails are still open. Many stream crossings are at seasonally high levels and fords should be avoided.

11/19/20. Pinnacle Gully.

Season opener 🧊⛏

Pinnacle Gully is definitely thin but in. Thoughtful moves over some particularly thin sections where water was running underneath with decently protectable ice for the conditions.

Great day out for the start of the season with crazy gusts coming in over the rock pile from the west once we got into the alpine garden.

The seasons are turning. Ice is in the air, and nowadays more than ever humans are getting out and the exploring locally. Look for your local winter attractions and take advantage of the wild places around you!

This is a shot from one of the last days out this past winter. Simpler times.

Here is to the upcoming winter, stay safe my friends and climb on!

Find Your Wild Place.

As the days get shorter so does our window of time to prepare for the ice before it comes in. So when you are at the climbing gym or on your home wall training long into the night be sure you are making the most of it. Train hard, train smarter.
