Anybody who’s climbed in the Trapps recently, can you share how muddy or wet it was?

Thanks in advance!!

Photos are from today, Tuesday 2/13

Rock and boulders are dry. There are patches of snow below some of the boulders, but most are primarily free of snow.

The West Trapps approach is a sheet of ice and actually dangerous. I wiped out and talked to others who also went down several times. 

Micro spikes or crampons would make this much safer. 

The Stairmaster is unfortunately closed but will reopen this weekend.

No, I am just in the Gunks frequently and I make the Gunks Apps so I like to keep our users informed. The head ranger told me they would be opening the Stairmaster this weekend.

The ice on the trails melted today. Trails are clear. 

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
