Just got back from a day on Chair Peak's North Face. Both the North Face and the NE Buttress are in great shape. Get out while the weather holds.

Ice in NW

Postby Norman » Sat Jan 02, 2010 4:51 am

Snowshoed toward, but all the way to Artist Point, Mt Baker today. Wind so hard the snow falling horizontal was stinging my pretty face! Any way, guy was rapping of Pan Dome Ice. It was 31 degrees. Lots of ice there. Lots of snow failling right now too. Wish I knew how you guys put a picture on this forums section.

Ice is out there, you just need to know where it is. Conditions right now may not be the best obviously. If I get around to it, I have some pics of what you can expect given decent conditions.

The ice is definitely there in Leavenworth, but it's been too warm the past week to be good or safe. However, once it gets cold again, that's where I'll be! I went ice climbing for the first time on the 26th and 27th, and the ice was GREAT!

Ice climbing conditions are FANTASTIC in Leavenworth right now. A little on the snowy side on the lower-angle climbs, but steeper (WI3-4) climbs are very fat and blue with minimal snow.

I was going to go to Leavenworth for ice climbing this weekend, but temps are high and it is likely raining. I called a friend down there and he said the ice is wet and sloppy right now. Let's hope for cold temperatures!
