Climbing Conditions

Climbed the Center Line on the Lower Weeping Wall and the Weeping Pillar on February 22. Great climbing conditions overall.

Some surface sun affected ice that required minor cleaning to place protection but other than that the route is in very good shape.

Good trail in place to access the upper Weeping Wall. Almost all the icicles that threaten parts of the Weeping Pillar have melted off and both left and right lines were in good shape. Very warm when the sun came out and some protection screws were beginning to melt out by the end of the longer pitches.

Most of the other routes on the Upper Weeping Wall looked heavily sun affected or have sections that have melted away.
