Another Sunday , another storm! Lots of blowing snow and cold temperatures today are making for phenomenal ice conditions at Pictured Rocks national Lakeshore. Most climbs are mid season form and growing everyday! Once again the seeps seem to be doing the best and high flow waterfalls about a week or two out from being climbable. The lakeshore trail is packed to Giddy Up and no snowshoes are needed. That could change over the next week as snow is forecasted but we will keep you updated.
Reports from the field of climbs that are in and have been climbed are: (there are many, many more but these have been confirmed!)
Potato Patch Falls
Sweet Mother Moses
We also have a report of ice fishermen that have crossed to Grand Island already! On Sunday the bay was open water but from Grand Island public access to Trout Bay was covered in ice. As always I would check with the Park Service or Forest Service headquarters before heading out on the lake ice. The good news is that if this weather holds….we will be on Grand Island for Ice Fest for sure!
