Does anyone know how these routes do after snow storms? Not sure if they present scary avy danger with ice that's not worth the trek back there. Or if anyone has actually seen them post storm this year that'd be pretty good info too!

Not quite climbing exactly but your best bet is to keep a close look on this page. If a trip report ends up on the web it'll appear here http://trailsnh.com/lists/New-Hampshire-4000-Footers.php

Hi all
I have a question for anyone familiar with the routes in that are
I went up to look for high and dry today. I left the trail before the hard right turn immediately after the last crossing.
The snow was easy to walk on (boot top powder above a supportive crust) but the bushwack was nasty
after 2 and half hours of bushwacking I got cliffed out.
Now my question: was I off route? Did I go up the wrong drainage or is everyone who has done the route much smarter or tougher than me? cuz I got thrashed and never even saw the slide

I did High and Dry in December last year and basically just followed the stream until the ice flows and had like 12 pitches of ice all the way to the top. The stream/bushwacking was not for more than an hour, I think. I don't remember details but it was pretty straight forward from what I remember.

I did the route in Dec 2012, go read this for a better BETA

The route was known (at least to me as the "Woodman-Dorcey".
