Lake Willoughby Ice Climbing Conditions Jan 18, 2010

January 21, 2010 § Leave a comment

I just spent three days ice climbing at Lake Willoughby, Vermont. Conditions were quite good overall, the ice was in quite fat on most of the trade routes. Temperatures have been in the upper 20’s – the skies have been cloudy keeping the routes from getting sun baked. Looks like a warm week ahead, hopefully the conditions will stay the same. Here are photos from January 18-20, 2010.

Mindbender (right) in great condition, Plug and Chug (left) in much harder shape.

Called on Account of Rains – some would say in – very thin delaminating ice at the bottom. Looked good above.
Promenade – pillar looks thick – threads in place at the top.
Last Gentleman – good shape – direct starts in but thin.
Crazy Diamond – good condition.
Tablets – looks good wall to wall ice.
