Yep, was at Homer's on Sunday, it was alright then, but it's got a big melt hole in it now.
Was at Franklin last night, good on the sides but also melty and wet.
Sandstone has more ice than ever due to farming.
We need a cold snap.

Have you been out?

It was awsome. Getting down to the base of the climbs we had to break trail though thigh deep snow. Led a really fun 5.4 crack on Queens Thrown (first time leading in boots give me a break). To top out on the route had to deal with 2.5 feet of snow. Had to be pretty careful on top of the routes also as the larger gaps in the rocks were filled in with snow making little "crevasses". It was a lot of fun.
