UDOT Avy control "tweet":

Provo Cyn will have 15 min. closures tommorrow from 10am to 1pm to sight in artillery. Stay clear of ice climbs until after 1pm

(Man, I hate twitter, but for UAC and UDOT updates it totally makes sense.)

Something to consider from MP

I have always wondered what kind of pressure those bolts receive, having the chains frozen into the ice. 250 gallons of ice, at 8 lbs per gallon will equal one ton. The limestone alone is suspect enough.

UAC tweeted:

Provo Cyn will have 15 min. closures tom. from 10am-12pm for avalanche control. Please stay clear of ice climbs until after 12pm

I suppose this means - "On Tuesday 12/21 if you don't want shells whistling over your head and possibly triggering a large slide that will undoubtedly sweep you and your partner into oblivion, stay off the ice."

Hmm... I dunno, shells whistling over my head DOES sound kinda entertaining...
