“Anchor” at the top of Black Dike. This winter I encountered a climber using this iconic tree as an anchor at the top of The Dike. I can only imagine others have done the same. In fact, I did—a decade ago when the tree wasn’t complete pulp.
.
You could argue that “yeah, but in the winter the roots are frozen in.” To which I’d say:
1) You are very correct.
2) The tree is so dead it has no bark and is the consistency of styrofoam.
3) There is a live 10” birch tree 3’ behind where I’m standing.
.
A few more pushes will put this tree down. A part of me thinks it’s a good idea, preventing future error, but I didn’t want to see this old icon go.
.
Here’s to many Dike/Hassigs top-outs in the ice season ahead. And here’s to mindful selection of anchors!

New ice guide!—Something to cool the mind during these dog days of summer: Todd Swain’s new Southern New England Ice Guide. Over 200 areas in 7 states. I haven’t seen the table of contents yet, but it looks like you’ll have to wait for the Northern edition for Willoughby. No word on the release for that one—I believe bayardrusselljr is heading it up(?). But, in any case, plenty to cool the mind here. Hitting the book stands soon!

Sure a coronavirus vaccine would be nice, but here’s something to really look forward to in Winter 2021...
Todd Swain has recently wrapped up and sent to the printer his Southern New England Ice Guide!
I know he’s been researching this project meticulously, and I look forward to enjoying the fruits of that labor.
