Ice Conditions 12-10-18

The last few weeks have been a perfect storm for producing early season ice, lots of snow combined with warm day time temperatures, and cold nights have seep climbs coming in quite nicely!  The true waterfalls are also a couple weeks ahead of schedule but are still not suitable for climbing.

If you are stoked to get on some ice there are smaller seeps to climb throughout the park-  this time of year please use caution before getting on any of the ice. Please be mind full that some formations are extremely delicate and knocking any pillars down at this point may take a month to reform.
