Anyone have an opinion on whether Right Gully on McHenry's would be in good shape right now or not?

Please let me know if you find a blue BD turbo ice screw half way up fat city. I had to leave it there a couple of weekends ago when a peice of ice hit my wife. Hope you can help. Thanks.

San Juans:

Bridalveil (in Telluride) was a dripping mess on Sunday. We bailed after realizing we had forgotten our swinsuits.

The park was in pretty bad shape Saturday. Still lots to climb but poor conditions. Lead area is barely usable.

Also: found some gear at the base of Bridalveil; reply or PM with a description if it's yours.

Found this lurking around Boulder County after a 2 mile bushwhack from the car.


What should I name it?!!
What should I name it?!!

98% sure this hasn't been climbed before, very remote, no trails, lots of wildlife. On public land.

The break at the bottom has filled in some since the above photo was taken a week earlier, bad camera day today.


Crappy camera.

Good Beginner/Intermediate route with solid TR anchors (20' sling).
The dilemma is telling anyone where it is.

Any one know any info on the current conditions of Avocado Gulley? Thank You


Avacado Gully is dry as a bone, as of 3/3/2013. Other classics in the Redstone area are in good shape, however. Redstone pillar and Marble Falls both in, and the Drool looked good from the approach to Redstone Pillar.

Well Mike, you've made 5 posts about this flow, so I'm guessing you want to really bad. Either that or you enjoy letting everyone know that you now have your own "secret" spot.

Either way it looks like a nice little piece of ice.

Would I be a jerk if someone were to teach me and provide me with the equipment to accomplish a lead climb of this flow in return for disclosure (just need some screws)? It's a precious place and extraordinarily untrammeled, better be good. Can I get a consensus on who I should talk to?

Hidden Falls is still great, approach is well packed. The leftmost corner is very fat too. Rifle is very warm, but Stone and Soul are still in good condition.

FYI...the tyrolean to get to Hidden Falls could do with a bit of tightening. We went up last weekend: I (about 155 pounds plus pack)barely cleared the water, but my partner (likely pushing 200 pounds?)got pretty wet, especially in the afternoon coming back. For some reason the line seemed tighter in the morning.

Was just wondering about the Tyrolean. Will bring gear to try to snug it up if we end up there - especially since my weight is in your partner's range! :)

Anyone been up to The Secret Stash in Vail recently (or this year?) Was going to check it out yesterday but the trail looked rather "virgin" and we bailed.

Was up at Vail this weekend. Secret stash was a little beat up, but pretty solid and fun to climb, the Designator was pretty solid, and I think the Fang collapsed and is reforming.

I was on Long's yesterday (3/14) and Dreamweaver had seemingly no ice in at the crux. But it's starting to fill in with snow.

Martha looked better than it did last month when I climbed it. I'd imagine there's some ice in it now. Would be worth it to go up there if you're psyched on Martha. I climbed it in lean conditions which would likely not be encountered around now.

The Flying Dutchman was decent snow to a pretty fat ice crux. The ice took 13cm & 17cm screws. Pretty good day out.

In Ouray now. Drove up Camp Bird yesterday, but didn't get far enough to see any ice. Drove up Red Mountain to the summit and saw Horsetail and a few other routes are in. Gravity is not in though.

The Drool has fallen down - barely even a base left to the pillar.

Redstone Pillar is still good to go for a while yet, but getting pretty snicey so pro is somewhat psychological.
