    Just got back from checking out the Lake. Too foggy to see much of the higher cliff. Mindbender had just formed a column again last week but was still too wet to climb. Unfortunately It fell down again. Judging by roadside ice, everything is undermined and wherever there are bigger flows, it's a waterfall. Probably some ice has fallen down as well on the main cliff areas but the fog is too dense to see up that high. Too dangerous right now to hike up and look.

    ***UPDATE*** Tuesday 1/14 - Decent stuff to climb on the south end. Called on Account of Rains came in night before last and will only be getting better as it gets colder. Bring your full gore-tex as the route was pretty wet yesterday. Best to bring enough screws or have the guns to lead the two upper sections in one long pitch to avoid belaying in one of two bad choices; a bomb zone or waterfall.
