Drove down 23a on Saturday and Kaaterskill, Moores Bridge and Asbestos are all non-existent, so I imagine everywhere is out. Go north young man!!!

Climbed at Stony Clove today. The Entertainer was entirely delaminated with several areas of no ice. The Little Black Dike was the only climb that was really "in" and it was excellent. It's leaner than usual and climbs hard for the grade. The forecast looks very promising and I believe early next week will see some quality ice in the Catskills. Snowshoes are a must right now.

Picture is of the Little Black Dike on 03/15.

Stony clove west was leadable in parts, but some baked - LBD was definitely taking solid screws. Trail is broken up from the road, and folks were climbing on east side as well.
