Dude,  do you  know  anything about ice?  Chia  is  one of the  climbs that  falls  down  dramatically.  It Is 50f right now  and  sunny.   Chia  may  be  climable  again this  season  but  only if it  gets a week of  clouds and  decent temps..

I'd think Smear and Pegasus will be sketch too pretty much anything that catches sun will be suspect including penguin, I wouldn't want to be belaying from the middle of that thing any time soon. Say the same for willoughby or cannon...

Willoughby will be very suspect. Stuff like Midbender may look big from below but when you get to the top you find that the whole thing is completely detacdhed…  the rock @ the lake is black and it faces SW...…   Pegasus rock finish, hobbit and Dracula are the only climbs I trust at frankenstine in full late season sun w/warm temps....

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
