Beautiful up in the Notch! Frosty and ice coated trees, blue sky, and ice! 6-7 parties up there today. EHG, Terrortory and ENT each saw more than one ascent. Lots of other stuff to do up there. Here's what I think will go: Poster Child, Blind Fate, Grand Illusion, Grand Confusion, Tri-scam, left-hand start to Dominatrix, Ragnarock (mixed 1st and 2nd pitches), Jeff Slide, possibly Hidden. Have fun!

Rocky, in what kind of shape are these in? "climbable" or "in" ?

Any hope for Daves or Blue Room by next weekend?

People were getting screws in them. I wouldn't say fat but 2-7" - good climbing. I never had trouble getting good placements.
I'd say south wall stuff could be in by next weekend if it stays cold at night and not higher above 35F.

Did Grand Confusion and ENT this morning, and I'd say they're "in"
screws went in where they needed to...

just to ease your worries about the rain. . .i climbed ent & j-slide this afternoon, lots o' ice. i walked out in a sleety mix, and the temps should stay at or below freezing. the forecast is quite wintry, so if you are planning on climbing this weekend, smuggs will be a safe bet. i'll have more specifics on routes by the weekend. any lake info anybody?

EHG and routes left of EH were fat on sat. and sun.
