As summit fog returned late this afternoon, it was thin enough to allow sunlight to stream through and get scattered and diffracted by the tiny droplets resulting in fogbows and glories around our antisolar point directly opposite the sun. ... See MoreSee Less

A skier had a close call yesterday, falling approximately 30 feet into a deep waterfall hole in the Headwall of Tuckerman Ravine. The fall line glissade track leads up to the location where the skier was able to self-extricate from the hole after 20 minutes of effort. He was very lucky to be able to climb out and to only suffer minor injuries, though dangerously wet and cold, as well as to have good partners and bystanders available to help. Several such falls have been fatal over the years, please learn from this accident! Full report on our website later today.

Many layers of clouds remain this morning as rain showers come to an end. The summit is finding itself in a bit of a "cloud sandwich"! ... See MoreSee Less
In and out and in and out
It would be neat if the clouds tasted like vanilla beans cream!

Water flowing under snow presents a hazard in winter and spring. The waterfall shown was frozen last week and was directly under the ski tracks above the crown of the avalanche that took a life on April 11. The ice created a thin spot in the snowpack as well as a convex roll and may have been the trigger point. Intimate knowledge of your intended terrain may help avoid known trigger points but is also a way to push too close to the edge of your safety margins in periods of marginal snow stability. ...

Wow where is this
Élise rivière souterraine!
Erin Elizabeth show your dad. We climbed and skied this 4 years ago
Ski down where you walk up. Always.

This charity event, in conjunction with our partners at @patagonia, help to support the @ausableriver and Boquet River Association, provides an educational opportunity for children and adults about our sensitive river ecosystems and a chance to get in the mountains and celebrate Spring!
See you on June 1st & 2nd for an entire weekend of events, swag, education, food and fun! ... See MoreSee Less

Still need climbers?
Cool! I'm interested but also have to take some scheduled calls at 10, 11, and 2 - still doable? I might also be able to pick up any additional volunteers from Brooklyn.
Any way to get there via public transpo?
Wish I lived in NY. I would be there!
What’s the ratio of climbers to guide students?
What hours are the volunteers needed?
As if I needed another reason to hate work
If only I had seen this sooner
I can do it if you still need people.
