Gunks Ice

Brendan, Ralph, and I climbed the Outback Slabs yesterday at the Mohonk Preserve.  We had to lower in and climb out after realizing the bottom curtain did not touch the ground yet.  If the curtain comes in the bottom is most likely WI 4 and the slab part going at WI 3 most the way.  Amazing views of the Catskills from the overlooks on top of the slabs.  The Flake at the Trapps is looking pretty fat, but Boston was looking thin.  Not sure about Broken Hammer but from the farms with binoculars it definitely has ice on it.
