Climbed in the Notch yesterday (Summary is: 5 pitches, one ice screw placed) and skied across the Notch this AM. Big change from AM yesterday to AM today. Melt line yesterday at 2200' at around 1pm--being in the trees was like being in a rainstorm. Last photo is of some variation we tried off of Grand Confusion. Confusion climbed nicely and the variation is recommended.
