Great shape! The freeze thaw means it's much less hooked out that it would otherwise be.

Anyone headed out on the 19th or are the crazy warm day temps deterring folks

Curious too since I am bailing on Vegas and would love to climb outside in MN ice or rock while I visit this weekend.

Scratch my previous comment; ice plans were scrapped for this weekend. Pals headed there today and said conditions were too wet and would likely be worse.

Thanks for the update. Seems like RW or TF might be a better option!

Yeah, my folks and I are probably switching areas as well. Though the winter wall might be the only thing climbable at this point, and the potholes @ TF will be interesting...

Think we are heading to TF if anyone can comment on conditions there that would be great!
