I took Daniel up Buttermilk today.  The routes have fairly dry ice with waterfalls on certain parts of the pitches.  You can find routes up each pitch with the top pitches having the most variations.  The creek crossing was not to bad with careful rock hopping to get across.  Wes Converse and Ralph Schimmenti are out in Moab climbing towers this week and should have some good photos coming soon.  Mark Folsom is climbing in the Red River Gorge this week with some old friends.  Mackey is headed to the Dacks to climb some last ice of the season.  I am taking a IOR Avalanche II Course with guide Chuck Boyd teaching the course.  Seems like everyone is out and making the most out of the spring weather.  Climbing at the Gunks has been amazing.
