The Bridal Veil Ice Festival is also this weekend......they've had challenges in pulling this off. I'm hoping they get a lot of support and good attendance. The BBQ can wait.....(can't it?)

Anyone tried the left side of Candlestick this year? Drippy?

Climbed Candlestick on 1/29. It could be climbed left, center or right not drippy at all.
It was is great shape.

And
The GWI SB BBQ probably can't wait as it has been traditionally been held on Super Bowl Sunday. The GWI BBQ is the very essence of what an Ice Fest is. A gathering of "squishy bunnies", both named and anonymous, to celebrate ice, mountains, climbing, friends, spirits and grilled meats.

Going head to head with the shenanigans in LCC was perhaps not the best scheduling decision.

Crampons and Sombrero ready!

Yes, I know about the Superbowl Day traditional BBQ, however I (and others) know how much work has been put into resurrecting the Bridal Veil Falls Ice Fest.

Solution: might not be too late to cancel the SuperBowl!

Cake & eat/drink it too: best day for Bridal Veil festival may be Sat anyway then buck it up & skin over to the GWI, descending from above. Many will be impressed.

On serious side, people can attend both and should do so.

If you look at the dates you can do both. the Bridal Veil Festival is today and tomorrow (Friday and Saturday) The GWI BBQ is Sunday. So attend both...

Correct but I heard that the avi control might be an issue today (I say that based on late night rumors so apologies......this could be totally incorrect) and a few other Friday things have changed (i.e., Jeff Lowe can't make it) but I think Steve can. I hope this doesn't deter anyone from going today nor tomorrow.

You're right....thanks for the correction on dates (but you can still skin over either way!)

Willard Falls was in on Dec. 22, haven't been back since so I can't attest to its current condition.

Maybe one of the worst overall ice climbing seasons we've had in years?

Ooooeee! So I guess it's cleared out to climb now!-) Looks more like a ski run than an ice climb...

Found an ice screw on the descent from GWI on Saturday night (2/8), around 8pm. I had talked to a guy from Georgia at the base whose partner lost a helmet on P2 - might this be yours? Message me with a description and I'll get it back to you.

Bridal Veil truly shit itself this weekend. Interested to see how this snowpack heals in the coming weeks.

If it's a 17 cm BD with red tape at the top of the barrel, it's mine, thanks. It should also have red plumbers tape on the top of the hanger that sez 17 cm. If that's what you have and you believe it's mine, how I go about getting it from you (thanks much. Warbonnet
