What do you think about this new Ice Fest shuttle to Grand Island?  Ice Fest friend Ed Schneiderhan of Houghton made the pilgrimage to Grand Island in style!  What an amazing way to scout your climbs and cut down your approach times.

Needless to say it was another banner weekend for climbing.  Virtually all of the climbs are still in with the exception of climbs exposed to the direct sun (East Channel and most of the West Shore of Grand Island).  Head to the mainland where the climbs are protected from the sun and you will still find phenomenal ice to climb. Reports came in that climbs from Sand Point to Dairyland are still in and climbable.
