|The Shroud in nice and fat (just a 10 minute walk from the Officer's Gulch exit). Climbed it on Sunday the 13th of Jan.|

|The Shroud is partially in - left side looks pretty good, but right side only has a few small columns touching down. Three Tiers is in to the top of Tier 2, with between 2 and 4 feet of well-consolidated snow covering the approach and most of the climb. First pitch is small, only about 15' of WI2 at the transition, rock and snow only to the first anchor. Second pitch is much nicer, still WI2, but lots more ice all-around. The heavy snowcover makes the climb kind of dull - but we put the trail back in today and it should last for a week or two. Contrary to previous reports, snowfields above 10Mile appeared to be caught in the rocks and stable, and there were no apparent layers in the runouts or gullies. A couple of small runs earlier in the season (2 weeks ago, perhaps?) looked to have happened, but confined themselves to the direct run-out and 30M below the first tier pitch. It appeared that a couple of climbs in the Designator area at Vail were in and good to the top of the cliff as well, but most of the other lines looked thin or not in for normal climbing yet.|

Climbed Round The Corner today with Tim and Nick. Touches down. Start is a pseudopillar, then opens up a little. Chandelier ice most of the way. Psych pro only first 35 feet. Stiff lead (for me), but recommended. Felt like 4+/5-. Easy approach right now, 6-10 inches of fresh stuff on the ground. No slide risk as of today. Keep the snow shoes in the basement for a few more days, but recommend ski poles to pick your way through the rocky approach.
Shroud is a long way from coming in, just a few bits of ice here and there.
Upper part of Tony's looked climbable, but Round the Corner looked better to us.

|Officer's Gulch is amazing right now. Tons of good quality ice/mixed routes are in. Just take your pick. And best of all the avalanche danger is low! It has been the best early season in a long time!|
