Went to the Adirondacks today to climb Trap Dike and took some pictures along the way of the ice climbing in the Avalanche Lake area as well as Cascade Pass area. Trap Dike is in good shape, with a couple of ice dams in the lower section and thin ice or exposed rock on the upper slab section. All the other areas were looking good (though Lucky Seven looked quite narrow). See photos for details.
