Where should we climb today -its 45 degrees? Lets see whats going on at Trollville? Aubrey, Matt and I teamed up for a threesome and drove over to Jackson. NEClimbs said mostly out of shape but we were looking for mixed lines not ice. On our approach we viewed the main part of the cliff which was running with water and the ice looked like slush. We kept our focus and went over to the right side in the shade and found four fantastic lines two ice and two mixed. This 50 foot cliff can put on the pump quickly and we were all quite satisfied by days end.

It was great for Aubrey and I to get out and climb with Matt. We were mixing it up in more than one way.
