iced over crust on snow above 3500'. Ice formed above 3500 and 4000', but anything below 3500' is running water. Hiking through White Oak Canyon and saw it has zero climbable ice.

The Park road is also closed and not fully plowed.

Anyone been up there in the last day or so? Hoping this cold snap will allow some routes to form up for this weekend. Anything that does form will most likely be thin, but maybe at least SOMETHING to climb locally. I'd like to get out a wee bit before the end of month road trip to NH for the MWV Ice Fest.

Cool. Please post something if it's worth the drive. I'm planning to go out there on Saturday. Are you headed for Overall / Thunderbird?

Two northeast transplants dying to get out.
Hope for Crabtree but likely not cold enough for long enough; plan is apple orchard, if sucks, try then south Shenandoah.

My partner bailed on me too. I won't be out there Saturday, but may go tomorrow and rope solo or TR something, especially if anyone else on here posts that something is in.

Overall was climbable Sunday. No one else there. very wet right side and extremely delaminated. Two lines on the far left were stepped out, but we were happy to find anything to climb after driving from Baltimore. only saw two sets of boots in the snow from friday or saturday.

What is the best way to find "Overall" and "Thunderbird"?

Overall is in nice. Right side a bit crunchy and wet. Left side solid and pretty vertical.12971298
