Ice Climbing?

It is the beginning of December, and we had a major cold snap along with high winds. Perfect conditions for ice flows to start forming. But, it has not been cold enough for a period of time to form stable ice for climbing. The Kaaterskill Creek is almost frozen. Buttermilk #6 is fully frozen. Bastion Falls is fully frozen. Additionally, on Sunday the weather will get warmer, and the ice will fall or diminish. But, it will get colder next week, so the ice may be climbable soon. Here are some pictures:
