New Hampshire Ice Conditions Nov 31, 2010

I climbed a few routes in Crawford Notch today. The ice is thick enough to climb although its still to early to place screws in many spots. A few more cold nights should thicken up the routes. I will say conditions were quite nice for a late November day in Crawford Notch.

The approach trail to Lower Hitchcock and Monkey Wrench. As you can see the trails are very boney – tough conditions.

This route is directly above Monkey Wrench and it is in fine early season shape.

A narrow runnel of ice on Upper Hitchcock Gully. The ice was wet and sticky all the way.
The ice is building – lets hope it stays cold this week.
The ice was thin in spots on Shoestring Gully.

The best ice on Shoestring was on this last pitch – the right finish.
