Was out yesterday, all the boulders have snow and ice on top of them. If we get a big meltdown today and tomorrow then it should be ok.......

How about the routes at the main wall and WEML? Are they all seeping?

now, no bushes, wood chips around the base,

This sits 5minutes from exit2 off Rt 84; an hour from NYC. There are a few other rocks, enough to break up the drive,
It is less than half way to the Mass line,
You could bag the FA of the sit start, and be back on the road in an hour.
Or check out Bald RockBasin

Some of the other local areas. , ,

This is also two minutes off of Rt84, at exit 7/-11, interchange.
. . . b Inviting, it is in a high traffic commercial zone 1/2 a mile from the hi-way exit.
This is also near a dependable 60 ft ice/mixed drool, as well as other rock,
including a short stout overhang.

I was just out there. Snow is almost all gone, except for the parking lot. Still runoff and seeps, should be mostly dry tomorrow but not everything.

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
