How much snow left in New Paltz? - 03/07/14 04:15 PM

3/7/14

Is it crazy to even think of getting a couple pitches in this Saturday, or is there still too much snow/ice?

I don't think it is crazy. A few weeks ago there was a 50 degree Saturday and I know people were able to climb. You just have to find the dryness. I am considering Sunday but the forecast was for temps in the 40s and it seems to have drifted back down into the 30s.

Unless you really have to I'd wait another couple of weeks. Haven't been over to the Preserve but there was still easily 1ft to 18" of solid cover in Accord. That 50degree day didn't make too much of a dent. It has been pd cold and dry since so little has changed in the past week or so and of course, if it ain't still snow covered, it will probably be wet. So while it might be possible, it will most likely kinda suck.

Of course, if you really must, be safe out there...no point getting hurt when warm dry rock is going to be plentiful in a few weeks.

Never mind, I went to the Trapps today. Lots of dry rock, lots of people out climbing. About a foot and a half of snow on the ground. I brought a tarp. It wS helpful. Great to be out rock climbing!
