Desperate for early swings, ya often end up scratchin'...but climbed Golden Spike in Uintas this past Tuesday...spicy first pitch, fun more secure ramble on the second...bailed from there to get back to work...should be getting fatter with recent snows.

Daniel, Mulch et al...just a thought but perhaps it's worth changing title of this thread to 2018-2019 Utah Ice Conditions so it's easier to find and doesn't get buried...then another one starts etc.

How would you approach that with Snowbird uphill traffic closed?

Struck out at November wall today (10/14).  

Guess the name is more accurate that we though after finding ice there last year at this time after what had seemed like similar conditions.

It snowed another 3-4 inches up there in some places.

Ditto on striking out...took tools for a long walk into a zone we thought we could find some new ice, then another zone yesterday...went a looong way to realize the Uintas are really dry (especially this year): total lack of ground water this summer to saturate soil is gonna be an issue for early season alpine ice and maybe even other routes forming up...Hayden hanging in there...

Any word on how Golden Spike is doing? Hoping to get up there on Thurs. Seems like that is the only ice reported in UT so far. 

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
