Tews takes a cold year and rarely freezes but there are other smears adjacent. Beware of hanging ice collapsing. Websters Falls area is not open to climbing.
Felkners has a high flow but will come in during prolonged cold snaps and can be fun.
Tiffany is more reliable and I've seen it come in as soon as mid December.

All the above are subject to a permit system.

There are also other icefalls on city property that freeze with varying results. No permit or access issues at this time.

thanks for the beta, Grant. I have climbed tiffany although i was never aware of a permit when i did so. I'll get that (tiffany is 10 minutes from my place).

seems like hanging ice is bad at all these undercut falls.

i've climbed some of the other falls on city property. The 403 falls (big one). Some of the smaller leaks uphill from the huge one, too. Fun stuff.

I went to climb the stuff behind chedoke golfclub many times with NO success. it was always running and either crappy or crappy and really thin.

last year was warm, though.

thanks again!

Nate,

I'm moving back to Guelph for Dec. 1. I'm sharpening and de-rusting my ice tools. My muscles are atrophied from 2 years sans ice, but i'm frickin pumped to get back down to civilization where I have partners and winter training available......

self-employed (can climb during the week), will travel, have an understanding wife, and I dislike long walks on the beach unless there is a seaside crag or something. Post-climbing pints are a must in all situations.

cheers,

Clint.

Is it to cold to climb up there now?

I really wanted to go get shut down on the Monument this year, but I never got up there. :?

I'm busy as hell right now, we're in the midst of moving. We just got our move-in date bumped up a week, so we'll be living in Guelph as of this coming weekend. Looking forward to winters in civilization, but next summer i'll be missing the easy access to LH.

Looking forward to getting back into the ice this winter.

If anyone in Guelph is looking for a regular partner for the gym drop me a line. I'll be looking to get in there at least 3 times a week this winter. (sorry to highjack the thread with my partner needs).

later

clint.

I don't have any ice gear, but I'd be willing to be someone's belay (weekends) if they don't mind partnering with an ice noob.
Also, I climb after work at Oasis if anyone is looking for a gym partner.
