Last year we were weeks into the season already. I was really hoping this would be a cold/er winter and I get back to tackle some projects in the Park.

Sure does!
but don't forget that last season was not the standard for down here...managed to climb overall falls on 12/9/10. Just remember it usually doesn't get right in SNP until early to mid January...but then again, the weather forecast this weekend is depressing after the past few days temperature tease. conditions in the 'daks last week made for less than impressive climbing too. Lets cross our fingers and pray hard.

I am not new to ice climbing but am new to ice climbing in the area. If there ever is good conditions this year, where is the climbing? Also I live near Annapolis and am looking for people to climb with. Not exactly a popular activity around here lol.

Ice has been climbed at least two different weekends here in the Valley this winter.

Hey all,

I'm a climber from the west coast hoping to get on some ice this weekend. I'm going to be staying near Seneca Rocks but I'm willing to drive. If anyone could please call me with some beta on conditions/locations I would greatly appreciate it. It doesn't seem like there is much in right now, but local beta would be great. Thanks again,

Anyone know how the ice is looking right now in White Oak Canyon? Not sure what the weather is doing and if it is like where I am I fear it will be gone by this weekend and I'll be rock climbing at Old Rag.
