Yes on Provo. Cedarcicle is best local St. George piece right now, climbed it last night, in great shape for lead (locals call it WI 5-6; felt more like a 4+ if you are use to big ice), we ran laps and cleaned it up a bit for you. Lost its top a while back, came back in real nice. Climbed Hidden Haven yesterday as well, all good. Coldest day of the year, one of Kanarraville's ought to be back if not both. Provo, mostly all in good shape.

Sweet! Thanks Dow. I have a partner but would be cool to meet up for a brew. Went to a dinner with Michelle P. a few nights ago and you came up in the conversation. All good things. 8)

If you know Michelle, then it is well known I do drink beer among other heathenistic virtues I bestow. I enjoy climbing with Michelle, she is a great partner. Drop a message when in town. Cedarcicle is awesome. Best Mexican food in southern Utah will be waiting for you at the old house on main street, Cedar City. Go with the cactus burrito.

GWI is in quite decently, but the weather turned to crap on the second pitch and was forced to bail :cry:
