    Went by today and there was quite a lot of ice building. I can't say anything more because I was hiking with my five year old and we didn't get all the way up to the ice!

    There was one car and two climbers who I saw coming down, around 3:30/4.

    Pictures to follow.

    RyanS and I started up Promenade this morning and got up just below the roof. It wasn't in the best conditions and the thin traverse out right of the roof was insecure and delaminated, so we decided to play it safe and bailed from threads on top of the thicker ice below the dagger. We ended up going over and doing Tablets Left which was great steeper climbing up higher but thin with water running under it on the slabby start. It looked like another party climbed Tablets Right earlier in the day. Conditions are not as good as they look from the road but definitely some good spicy climbing to be had, if you're into it.

    It must have been.

    A bit more ice formed overnight at Willoughby to make spots that already had good water flow thicker, but it still needs a couple more thaw cycles for the big routes to come in.

    Weather looks like it is cooperating. Can't wait to get up there.
