Midnite Madness

Skiied into Wall Lake Saturday with Jessica and climbed Midnite Madness. The skiing sucked but the ice was in pretty good early season shape. In fact most of the ice in there is in not bad shape. Needed a KB at the top of the first pitch for the belay station. Got hit with quite a bit of spin drift from above, most of it being carried and deposited by the wind which leads me to believe that the slopes above are getting cross loaded so there will probably be some pretty good size avalanches in there after the next snow fall unless the wind scours those upper slopes clean. For the moment though, things are fairly stable and there was very little sign of any previous avalanche activity so far.
