So we headed over to Munising for some night climbing yesterday and we surprised to find the ice blew into Munising Bay! It didn’t take long for the ice fishermen to grab the shacks and start dragging them out. Seems that the ice is actually quite thick from shore to the middle of the bay and then thins out and is not crossable the closer you get to Grand Island.
The temperatures have been cooperating with mild day time temps and cold over night which now I am happy to report that most climbs in the park are now climbable! With the pack ice now settling into Munising Bay there is a very good chance that by Ice Fest we just might be able to access Grand Island!
