Moore's Bridge ice climbing

We have added a new Catskill’s Ice Climbing Conditions page since this blog was writen last winter.  Click http://mountainskills.biz/iceConditions.htm
to check it out.  We took some folks up to Moore’s Bridge on Wednesday.  The ice is still hanging on.  It started to snow around 12pm and by the time we left around 5pm we had around 3 inches in the truck bed.  We turned around at the Asbestos/Buttermilk Falls parking area.  The ravines look really good but Asbestos was toast.  Palenville corner is toast.  Didn’t really get to look at Jeff’s Wet Dream but it seemed like the ice down low was still climbable if you don’t mind a lot of running creek water close to your feet.
