Ice in the San Juans!

A few things are forming up in the highcountry. We went and climbed the Direct North Face Routes in South Mineral Creek. The pillars were a bit funky, but the lower angles terrain is in good shape. Campground couloirs have some ice on them, but thin. Other reports show some ice on Snowblind and the upper parts of Stairway. Now we just need some more cold precip. Looks like its going to be a nice week for rock climbing though. It won't be long now.
