Well, I drove up to Hunter today... not one of my smarter moves, but I survived the drive up despite having snow billow up from the road onto my windshield

There was lightning before dawn, around 6:30AM. Wild.

I took a glance at Asbestos Pass on the way out, without actually stopping the car. It looks like it's trying hard to form back up, but I didn't see anything that was what I'd call climbable, at least not leadable. The stream didn't look solid either.

What, you see a picture of Rawdon and assume it's Moore's bridge?

Forget sir screw a lot, he should be called the Mayor of Moore's...or maybe Othello.

And yes, I do mean this week. Here's a look at the 3rd (top) pitch of Hillyer Falls today. The ice was great... the approach sucked, as always.

Of course, what Mike's NOT mentioning is that if you want to climb for more than 5 moves you have to do s sit-start.

Yeah, but that's 5 moves more than I've climbed in almost two weeks! I hope to get up north tomorrow to get a fix, boredom is setting in in a big way. It's gotten so bad, I've even gone to the gym!
