    I poked around the climbing areas along 73 today and saw the following:

    NFOP is pretty verglassy. There are a few smaller routes fully in form (I'm going to get the names wrong), but unless you're into thin/mixed/etc., options are fairly limited.

    Cascade Pass had a lot of climbable routes on the North side, though on the whole they looked a bit iffy for leading; South side was thin to out. This seemed like the densest area for climbable stuff.

    At Chapel Pond, Chouinard's was in, as was the first pitch of Crystal Ice Tower (upper pitches looked thin but might still be climbable).

    Roaring Brook Falls looked good from the road, though I didn't see anyone on it.

    Hope that helps someone....

    The cold weekend had a significant, positive effect on most non-sunny areas. It's still Game On.
