    Headed up to Stoney Clove yesterday and climbed LBD and Sorenson's Smear. The condition of the ice is rebounding nicely after Sunday's rain event. Although the ice has a long way to go before it's "in" for most folks it does have some leadable/top ropeable lines in the region if you choose correctly. Please keep in mind that the ice is thin and is hard to protect on most routes so if your not comfortable soloing or have a old hands eye at finding protectable sections I would error on the side of good judgment this weekend. Better yet head up to the Dacks and party with the Mountainfest people.
