Temps dropped below freezing for a few hours last night. This really helped dry up many of the routes that have been quite wet the last couple days. The forecast is perfect for more ice farming. We expect conditions to continue improving during the next few weeks. While temps are warm we advise using extreme caution in the vicinity of any free hanging curtains and smaller pillars. Generally, the South End of the Park has better climbing right now. Access in the bottom of the gorge is great. Stay tuned for daily updates and details on our end of season gear give-a-ways.
