|Jon Jones making Linville Gorge his bitch.|
|Jean Claude Van-Damm getting real.|
|Not the Coyote Ugly I had in mind but not a bad alternative if the ice is out.|
As I type this my friends in the High Country are disowning me because Linville Gorge is the dark horse of NC ice. Long adventurous days to potentially there ice flows may turn away most but you are guaranteed to get something out of it. The water tables can be so out of whack there that one day the classics will be out and something obscure will be fat. Case in point, I walked in to a reliable ice flow with my rope gun Jon Jones, and spotted a flow I had never seen before. We were so confused that it was in that we decided to pass on it for a more reliable flow. It ended up being good but on the way out the first one was melting out so we couldn't do it. Strike while the iron is cold...or something like that. Linville might be shaping up too.
Friday high 39 low 24,

Sunday high 33 low 18.
