A beautiful afternoon in Sedona.

Is it getting close enough to start this thread? I know I'm excited. Went hiking at Joe's Valley area with the dog on Sunday 11/11 and took some photos. Joe's is still way too thin, even at Mary's Lake. The Dirtcicle was actually in almost climbable conditions though. What about colder areas like Robert's Horn?

Micah,
Did you head up to Mary's Lake while you were out hiking? Just wondering... Normally Mary's is one of the first areas to come in.

All lines in BVF area are in top to bottom...Stairway is forming up...climbed Apron via TR yesterday...conditions were thin...some running water in places but overall good sticks...10 to 13 cm screws would work for leading

I top-roped the apron Monday and today. The lines are in but its getting thinner and softer, not sure it will survive the week. I also took a hike up to Roberts Horn on Friday (11/9) found no ice anywhere. It might have started forming since.

Why I do it...

I live about 2 hours North of SLC and have never climbed Wasatch Ice. Anyone looking to get out this Friday and Saturday? Send me a PM with your phone and we can meet. I can lead WI3-4 and follow WI5.
All my Ice experience is in the Teton's, Cody, Bozeman, and Twin Falls ID.
I'm not a noob, just looking to get out this weekend.

Sunny D,
Mary's has ice, more than the roadside ice at Joe's, but still not leadable. Sorry, no pics . . . It looked like there hadn't been enough moisture there, because the temps should have been low enough last week through the weekend to get it forming up nicely.

Upper section of GWI is gone. Ice below is looking poor.

Some ice on Super Slab. Too bad the temps are warming.

Just thinking about ice gets me all excited. Let's hope the Donorcicle looks as good as it did last year:

I ran 3 laps on it yesterday. It was melting fast, and a torrent was running off of the top. I was glad I had my hard shell on. Too unstable to lead. It was a neat experience. I've never climbed under a fire hose.
Still worth it, even with the drive from Albion Idaho just for that.

False start. Over before it started. Rain to 8000'
Rock will be dry and warm though.

I took this pic from the Aspen Grove parking lot, when the route is in its totally visible, my guess there is about 8" of snow on top of rock. May ski up and check it out next week, the freeze thaw cycle should be in high gear and this could form up fast. Otherwise lets all start making some serious sacrifices to the god of ice!

I was up on Timp on Saturday. Must have got there before Ridge did. I climbed the first 30+ feet and backed off. The Sun is baking the climb and it is mostly consolidated snow. If you are going to get on it get up really early. We were there at about 9:30 in the morning. We did find a good piece of ice up to the left of this climb it has an anchor on the top of it now. Webbing on a tree. The Picture window area has no ice at all...

Ha Ha! True, you did get there a few minutes before me. I just set up this account (username Ridge). I meant to post the conditions; but, I was sidetracked after I uploaded the image. Here's a POV shot from the ice that we did find. Dallen lead the route.

Take it easy

Led the Dirtcicle on Saturday 11/24. Everything was solid and decently protectable, only concerned with one placement. Afterwards we ran laps on it until one of us punched through at the top and the thing started raining water everywhere.

Here is the link to pics:

I hiked up to Miller's Thriller on the 22nd, no ice anywhere.

However, I finally found a trail (Bush whacked it up there for years), looks like somebody has been working hard on building a nice trail up to the area. Go across the Upper Bridge, then behind the abandoned pump house, up the main trail for ~40 yards then turn and head west. It was marked with surveyors tape.

Nope. Way too warm. Mid 40's at Alta.
