Midnite Madness

Dave Stephens, Kevin Nemeth and myself skied into Wall Lake Thursday, Nov. 11 to do some ice climbing. I was just a little dissapointed in the condition of the ice. I figured being a north aspect and at about 6000' the ice would be in good shape by now but Midnite Madness was climable but sketchy as far as leading goes. We climbed one coulior further west but it definitely wasn't worth the 3 hour approach. The snow is getting hard and crusty so the skiing wasn't even very good. In fact it was boardering on treacherous unlike our trip on Oct. 23 into Bennett Pass when the skiing was phenomenal. Check out Dave Stephens website for some good pictures.
