Things are looking good.
G1 any route is good, the center is not filled in BUT JOJO etall redirected the flow more left to ease the sinking trees up top. The far righ side is brittle, the middle is a bit plasticy and the left is perfect.

G2 screws to your comfort, it soild the whole way up.

Hangover same as G2 its solid.

Twin falls is getting super fat. screw to you comfort.

Dribbles was in good form a bit thin up top but by this weekend should be just fine.

The ampitheater climbs, THin and fat chance are getting fat. Swtich back falls is getting fat too. screws to your comfort.

I have not been in the Mummy area yet so cant say. But from what I have see thus far most of the routes are fully climbable and will take up to a 19mm in any spot.

Hello
would love to hear about Cleopatra's Needle.

How much ice does 'Thrill is Gone' needs to be considered in the good condition by majority of regular climbers? I know it is a mixed climb and theoretically can be climbed with minimal ice?

Cleos is in good WI5 shape, hiked below it a week and a half ago and it was actually looking pretty picked out.

Thrill is in good shape, it can be done with very little ice as there is good rock pro the entire way up it. Alex in wonderland looks like it might even be touching down, super fat!

Everything that I've seen up there recently is in. There is even a fixed line up to the ice on Winter Dance if you're in to that, it's looking pretty fat this year. T Howes

good lookin one was lookin thin up high last I checked (week and a half ago). I try and throw something up after every time I go into Hyalite. Other people chip in sometimes. I'll put something up this saturday night.

I've always understood Black Gully to be a spring freeze/thaw route. I could be wrong, anyone?

Hello
Dribbles in great conditions (was very brittle on first pitch though, when we did it 3-4 days ago). I took the steepest line to the left of the wi3ish ramp that majority of people take on pitch 3 and made it into a wi4+ish pumper.

Cleopatra's Needle is in and cleaned out! I got to lead every pitch, including the wi5 pillar that does not touch down at the moment. Onsighted my first wi5!

Thrill Is Gone was onsighted yesterday. It does not have much ice through the middle but that's what makes it a mixed climb right? AWESOME climb. Kept me engaged throughout.

Hangover is in great shape.

G1 is good

G2 is ok. Picked out at the top

Fat Chance is fat.

Thin Chance is thin and picked out. Someone called it wi5 after leading it. I led it and thought it was wi4, just thin which makes it kind of scary. But you can hook a lot.

Mummy II was fat but wet

Scepter- one of the scariest leads ever for me. Climbing was not hard, but it was soooo shendeliered that i couldn't place screws that were confidence inspiring till half way up it. Place a screw, and it goes hollow after half way point. than on the upper part u swing and whole tool goes in almost with the head, cuz it bashed through thinish shendeliery sh#t. So I did more hooking and ran it out a ways on top too. Climb was not picked out 3 days ago. But I saw people on it yesterday, so good ice may be accessed soon, and big steps could be formed.

Fat One is fat.
