While we are clearly seeing a slow rise in winter temps, I didn't take this as being very dramatic until this past weekend. I went back to Cortland over the weekend and dropped by Tinkers Falls, which I have not visited since '81. The most obvious change was that there were other climbers there, something I never experienced visiting 3-4 times each winter while going to school in the area. The other change was that the most central, large pillar had a twenty foot gap disconnecting it from the above rock ledge. Again, this was something I did not ever see before and didn't expect after the last week or so of cooler weather. Granted, the late 70s into early 80s were a brief time of more severe winter. As a plus, there was much more frozen flow surrounding the ampitheater, which I attribute to the increased running water. The times are a changin'.

This current mess doesn't seem to be so bad, the next round on Friday could be the deal breaker for any ice south of Albany.

This of course is like watching football and getting all pissed off that your team is going lose after a recent winning streak. Nothing you can do about it except drink beer, eat and watch the carnage.

Oh, sorry. I thought I was posting in a forum for "Ice Climbing Discussion for the Hudson Valley/Catskills Region"

Except that drive on the Gauntlet this Friday doesn’t look all that appealing…

“what the hell is the Gauntlet,”

Haven’t you driven the Thruway north on a Friday night with every idiot from NYC.

Makes you feel like you’re stuck in the middle here clubbing away…
