January Ice Conditions

Sorry for the delay in posting, the ice fest is always crazy. Here is the quick low-down.

Skylight climb are great. Engineer climbs are hanging in, anyone climb Mixed Emotions yet? Over the Rainbow pillars have been getting attention. I have seen folks on the right one, but not the proud left pillar. Bear creek routes look good for the motivated, Horsetail would be a wallow.

No word on anyone climbing in silverton, although I would imagine the outward bound wall is still looking good. Avi conditions have been funky, although things are looking better.

Skied on the pass this morning, great snow. Went to the park afterwards. Things are healing fast after the fest. Some parts of the park are still hardly touched, ie Brass Tacks and most of the lead area.
