In late February, IMCS guide Paul McCoy and Rick M. found great ice to climb in Crawford Notch and Dixville Notch. Here are some great photos from two classics: Hitchcock Gully and Parasol Gully:

Up next, we have some early March alpine ice climbing in Yale Gully and Pinnacle Gully in Huntington Ravine:

One of the most difficult objectives on the East Coast, the Presidential Traverse is not to be taken lightly. We might have lucked out with the weather this weekend, but our legs are still tired. Twenty miles and two bivouacs! Happy to have guided another successful traverse!
