Super wintry there right now; if I were you I would head to Whitegrass instead. Lotsa fresh POW!

The Reflector Oven at Old Rag is a really good winter spot. Very warm and little wind. We were in tee shirts last December on a 30 degree (forecasted) day. It felt like 60, and we all got sunburn.

You must really like suffering. But then, you're from AK. Maybe this is balmy.

Seneca will be miserable but I know some places that are both closer and southfacing if you want to do some day trips. I work most weekdays but am free pretty much every weekend.

Did you have any luck finding any climbing? I'm in the same boat...heading back for a few weeks and looking for some warmer spots.

East face, mid-morning on a sunny day with no wind can be awesome!

I'm stuck in the area, too.
Got 2 Crashpads if someone wants to go bouldering.
