Utah Ice?

Postby bird » Fri Nov 27, 2009 7:06 pm

Is there a good ice conditions report somewhere? Was planning a family ski trip in 2 weeks, but the snow sucks, so I may do a climb or two. Is great white icicle in? Other WI3-4's?

The ice here is starting to come in. bring your tools.

I'll be checking the icicle tomorrow.

Indeed, the bottom half was in, and middle appeared to have been climbed (& top?). Perhaps its still in.. haven't been up since sat.

Bird, I know its not ice, but the South Ridge of Superior seems right up your alley. Web cam for current conditions.

Anyone been down to Joe's Valley? Wondering if there is any ice in yet. Might head down on Sunday, but dont want to waste a day if nothing has come in yet. Thanks.

This post might be a bit late for your Joes Valley question, but some buddies were down there on Thursday and climbed Deadbolt. They said it was a bit thin, but still very fun. There are also some recent Joes Valley obs on MountainProject: http://www.mountainproject.com/v/northe ... 6565036__2
