    A few of the AE guides climbed st the Dark Side today. There was decent ice but things took a hit and were melting out. Formations that were in the sun across the ravine were coming down hard. Looking across on the way in, there was ice in the Devils Kitchen and it looked ok. We were in Hillyer earlier this week and the ice was good and taking 13-16cm screws, but with the weather this past Saturday and Sunday, I'm not sure how things will be for a few days. I'd suggest giving things two to three days with below freezing temps before getting on them.
    Happy Festivus!
