Vitaliy, silverstrand wasnt looking to good on my way back from work, i only looked at the top half of route, the left 1/3 had fallen off, and i was surprised that it was there at all considering how warm it has been last few days

Thank you guys. haha I heard it was real warm and raining at 8000ft yesterday! Forecast shows good cooling ahead, but by than there might not be any of it left I guess. At least now I have a partner! Can't believe I couldn't get anyone to go with me last Wednesday. I mean damn, it's Widows Tears! Say hell with work and go..especially when there were others climbing the route and conditions were obviously better than usual. :/

Would be very interesting to see how Widows Tears and Silver strand look after the recent warming trend. Watching it all fall off would be quite a scene.

It's so warm right now. Last week during the cold snap some climbs went down. Paging Vitaliy

We are in a classic January Thaw right now.
I wouldn't worry about ice anytime soon.

Update about climbs that are likely not there anymore. Here is SS on 1/1/15. Climbed it on 1/2/2015. Would be interesting to find out when it collapsed...in any case, super fun climb! It was 600 ft of climbing and not 'fat.' Made a video about the climb! Will post soon!

Widows tears was non existing in the upper pitches, which was a big surprise to me. Some of the bottom pitches were actually there!
Sentinel falls looked awesome up high but the middle section was missing. Bottom part looked possibly doable.
Rock climbing was IN!

Thanks a lot for the update. Please please please post up or email me if you see the tears forming! xxvitaliyxx@yahoo.com
Would be happy to reward you with a bottle of wine if the info you provide leads to me climbing that thing. :) And for all the cool routes you have contributed!
