    We climbed the dike yesterday. The saying "thin is in" was truly applicable to how the conditions are up there right now. P1 : mostly well bonded thin unprotectable ice. P2: thin ice going up to the rock traverse, then no ice in the hose for 40ish ft, after the grade eases of a little the ice there and would take a stubby in places. P3: started out on ice, then after a short steep parasol capped headwall turned to mostly loose snow covered rock. I would say overall the Dike is claimable, but far from "in"... If you need lots of ice DO NOT GO!!! I will try and post some pics later. Follow the link to pics...
