After finding disappointing conditions last Thursday along the Lakeshore Trail, I was pleasantly surprised today to find the Sand Point climbs in excellent condition! Lots of quality ice at the Curtains, and the good news……it looks like it might be around for awhile!
Prelude Curtain and Opening Curtain are as large as I have ever seen them. We also discovered some short fun climbs that have formed this year climbers right of Prelude Curtain.
It looks like the key to finding climbable climbs is to scout around and find areas that have relatively low snow cover above them. Everything we found today was snow free and are not getting eaten out from the water above. With cold temperatures coming back to the area this week it looks like our climbing season will be extended!
