    Sorry. I drove through yesterday and things looked pretty solid. Chouinards, Crystal, Dead Rabbit all looked climbable. Didn't get a good look at Power Play. Forest rangers were doing some kind of training in the AM, about 15 Ranger Trucks parked at the pond pullout. It has not been too warm here today - about 34F, some sun, but the climbs there don't get much sun. I think there's plenty to do there.

    Got up to Chapel Pond this past Friday the 20th. Big Brother was feisty.

    Patty's looks like pure joy.
    Power Play was very friendly.

    Things in Cascade Pass were delaminated and wet. But in good shape to rebuild even stronger this coming week it looks like

    Cascade was very thin in many places and several holes were visible in the ice. Green gully was in good condition.

    Got pretty warm on NSOP on Sat., over 40 anyway. Even so, Central Column, Tendonitis, Arm & Hammer, Moss were all fat and friendly. Screw and Climax looked doable, just didn't want to hike up there with so much closer stuff. It stayed warm Sat. nite, probably did not crack freezing, and mid-30s on Sun, but I'm guessing everything hung in well.

    Thursday and Friday were outstanding. No crowds at the Canyon or the Pond. Multiplication Gully was running water and hero ice Saturday. Knob Lock was our savior and better than expected Sunday. The Pass was foggy and mobbed with climbers by 10am. The ice can be safe and good even today if you know where to look.
