Curtain Call fell down and the lower pitches of Polar Circus are formed. Didn't get to the Ribbon though.

Kerkeslin is formed but no in per se. I climbed it this afternoon and I'd recommend waiting.

A few climbers doing routes along the parkway. Aimless and Pointless Gullies were both climbed in addition to some of the above named climbs. Anyone hoping for Ice Nine or Happy days will have to remain patient. I noted neither had touched down but were coming along provided we don't get a cold snap to break them off. Also noted a car nearby Balfour Wall or Tranparent Fool but I wouldn't know where they had gone.

The far right side of Tangle has filled in and was being climbed on Sunday (the stand-alone feature). We climbed the left side of the main flow and found 2 clime-able lines. Going straight up and to the tree anchor was good, although the top pillars were pretty aerated and there was a lot of rock to properly de-tune your picks on. You could also go up and traverse right to the bolted anchor.
