Mike and I met at the Cannon Mountain tramway area this morning at 7am. Our objective was the Black Dike. It was a cold morning with overcast skies and temps in the single numbers. In our favor was a light wind and there was no one in the parking lot. We gave it a go and started the long approach up the talus. We arrived at the base of the route 45 minutes later. The route looked lean and brittle and the last pitch had a large umbrella type over hang of ice to climb around. Today would be a good one for sure.
