Anyone willing to tolerate climbing with a newbie this weekend? I'm psyched to get on some ice, but can't find a partner for this weekend. I have my gear, and I'm happy to belay and buy beer.

Pat, it might be a bit too warm for ice climbing in Tahoe this weekend. If I was you I would try Lee Vining instead.

Yeah, I checked right after posting that, and realized it was probably just going to be a ski weekend. Unless anyone wants to head out to Lee Vining.

LVC Main Wall (top and bottom) and Chouinard obliterated this past weekend by a massive invasion of guided groups. Lots of hooking beaten out and shattered placements if that's your cuppa until it heals.

On the upside, only one party was on the North side of the canyon piecing together an excellent and well-protected three pitch meandering route up the slabs and vertical steps on the toe - that area is in beautifully

Anyone know if there is ice left at Coldstream?

Planning to head up on Tuesday, but its looking like it's going to be warming during the day. Night time seems to stay low.

Attempted to go in yesterday morning. Hoping to drive in to the RR tracks from the bottom. Obvious to me now but not yesterday that is not possible. Only way in I think is to ski in from above. Super cold in the morning in Truckee. Was not prepared to ski in so did not see for sure. My plan was to go in early before it warmed up to much.

Is it true this hasn't formed in 12 years?

Despite the warmer temps, things in the shade seem to be doing all right.
The single digit lows might be going away though and with that we might lose our ice. For now it's good though.

I'm guessing from the weather reports that nothing's really in anymore? Even Lee Vining looks way to warm.

As of last weekend, Lee Vining right side are fat. The very left side (steep part) was pathetic.
