Catskill Ice Climbing conditions 02-14-09

John Mackey and I drove up to the Catskills to check out the conditions after the big warm up yesterday.  The Platte Clove waterfalls are blown out big time.  The Devils Kitchen took a hit with only a few lines left that can be lead.  Stoney Clove looked terrible except for the East side of the road.  Asbestos was hanging in but I think will take another beating  with the sun in the next couple of days.  The ravines are running with water and crossing the creek is interesting right now.  Moore’s has climbable lines, the corner next to the power line is running with water.  Palenville Corner is baked and most likely gonna come down soon.  It’s going to stay cold for the next 10 days so hopefully things will come back in good shape for the last part of the season.
