The colder temperatures are not a problem for winter rock climbing but water, ice and snow arenít too much fun. Does the Trapps stay relatively dry during the winter months? Is it worth the 4+ hour drive from Massachusetts to work on some routes before the crowds hit?

Insert comment about how I should be ice climbing here:___________

Thanks for your feedback,

Jason

Post up over on Gunks.com for more local advice. There have been some other folks asking the same question there.

I don't have the answer. I've been ice climbing. Wink

Wondering the same thing, if you get any word, please reply to this thread!

From Western Mass it's only 2.5 hrs :)
