I did manage to climb Chantilly Falls on Nov. 18th. Very thin but made it nice enjoyable climb with the lady. didn't walk to it, but we could see Moonlight in shape with a thin 1st pitch, by the sound of it they was climbers over there having a good time. Snowline and 2 Low 4 Zero didn't seemed formed at all. Not sure what the rain of last week did to those climbs.
