I've gone once at lee vining, but it'd be nice to go again with someone a little more experienced. I have all my own gear and vacation time. Located in the bay area.

Hello

I would be interested too. In January I can get 3-4 day weekends. Can do a few days of ice and a few days of rock at Owens River Gorge. Lead to about wi5 (not when ice is dripping with water or super sketchy though).
Would love to climb in Tahoe area too. Did some climbing there over the last few years and liked it.
xxvitaliyxx@yahoo.com

Maybe we could make some kind of a email list which would include people looking to ice climb in CA..

Yea, but you are not far at all from Sequoia, Yosemite and Kings Canyon

Good ice on the Watchtower

Hey Chris definitely!

Yeah Toby that's true! I have been looking into the tokopah area since I've moved out here. Moonage is something I would do with a more experienced climber than myself. I am still working on the leading end of things - I'll save multipitch WI4 for a little later haha.

I'm hoping this storm they are forecasting for next week brings the cold temps they are saying and ice will form nicely by mid December.

I've finally found a solid partner, but there's always times where our schedules won't work out so I figured I'd add my name to the list. I'm usually capable of leading 4's and will follow about anything. Don't mind taking beginners out occasionally, but am trying to push myself on harder climbs this year. Already have two days on ice so it's shaping up to be a great year.

Does anyone have an up to date condition report for Dana or North Peak from over the weekend?

Hope everyone had a good thanksgiving!

Please put my name on the list too. I live in LA, but I would drive to Tahoe for some ice anytime, even for a day or two. Right now probably in WI3 or easy WI4 range.

email: david.cap@bocians.net

BTW. anyone knows what the conditions around the lake are right now ? I'm gonna be there next week and wondering if I could squeeze some ice climbing in ...

How did you like living in Bozeman? My girlfriends parents were thinking of moving there for work.

Hello

With this cold front coming I bet there will be a lot of frozen stuff out in Tahoe. Wish someone hung a hose down one of those walls on Lovers Leap or Donner. Saw a photo of some farmed ice at Donner back in the day and it was mindblowing!
If anyone is planning to get out to check on ice conditions before the weekend, please post up! I saw a photo of wet looking but pretty good ice at Coldstream in the end of Nov. With cold front there should be a lot of good ice there in the end of this weekend, I think. Not sure how accessible it will be with 6-10 inches of snow predicted for Friday night...

Seems like there is A LOT of interest and people in need of ice partners. After this front moves through and depending on the weather and ice conditions, how would everybody feel of a big meet and greet one weekend either in Donner/Cold Stream or Eagle Lake/Sunny Falls?
