Two confirmed recent sightings of ice... The Cross on Tallac is building. This next storm (weekend) might bury it or make it fatter.

There is definitely a pillar forming at the Leap between main and central walls. Not sure what it's called, but it's there.
Still snow on the ground here with lots of sun, good conditions for the formation of ice, if only we had some more precip.

Sweet pics everyone.

Bump for nice pics and climbing content :)

Any pics or experiences from Eeyore's Fantasy at the leap? Skied up there once looking for it after a cold spell but found nothing... even more curious now.

Where on Maggie's Peak is that ice gully exactly? Quick description of approach?

The gullies on Maggies are really obvious from the north side of Eagle Creek Valley. I believe you just want to start up the valley like you are going to Eagle Lake and at some point veer off towards the base of the routes on the N. Face of Maggies. I do not say (type) this from experience, this is only conjecture.

It's been pretty warm this week. Tallac lost a lot of snow yesterday, but there is some more with cold temps in the forecast. So for ice around here, it's pretty bleak.

Apparently some of the mellower stuff is IN in Lee Vining

Let's keep this thread alive. The first person to post pics of ice (WI) from this season should get a prize!

Edited to add: That Keyhole route above Squaw looks awesome. Where is it?
