The ice is setting up nicely. It's still real early season. Hopefully it will fill in with some colder temps. There were a few people up there, but no climbers. This snow that we are getting would make the drive pretty interesting.
The ice is hookable with big nodes, so I climbed up and down a few times trying not to bust any icicles and ruin it for the rest of the season. Downclimbing ice is and art that I need to spend more time on. It makes you very aware of your foot placement.
The kids are now hassling me to go snowshoeing. It's really ME snowshoeing pulling them in a sled. Good for a nice long cardio day.
