Furthest left ice. Alone on this ice I backed off,...

Description 

All the ice is about thirty feet high or less. The far left side has most steepest ice and some climbs will need trad gear. The far right has bulging with steep height ice and some ceiling dry point neighboring ice potential. Think environmentally friendly first to the exposed moss ledges, please. The ice is thick enough and it has height from this year's drought, possibly?
These climbs are short workouts and have problematic moves, although only one has been recorded done, it is not for me too say any of these have not been done before.


Getting There 

Take the trail to the 5.8 Crag. Left side ice is at the cliff line and the right side is far up the trail right.

Is the picture tilted? What do I know. Probably a little. Fat ice until the top curtain and it can be screwed. I removed the dead tree from the curtain before climbing up it by ridiculousness of a karate kick. Then the long lift to escort it out of there. Didn't see that tree problem coming. Should have used my crystal ball. Something new instead happened and after it being nuts more fun topping off it.

More serious than I thought. Climb the ice bulges or go left direct. I chose a bulge to a ramp to a chimney likeness of ice bulges then the pleaded like curtain crux at the top. The crux was bad ass steep with much kicking for my left foot placements, then finishing with tools in below freezing temperature leafy dirt. I did a high stepping out of there technique and got only the single crampon tip over the lip. That was good and plenty. It was done. No rope solo....[more]   Browse More Classics in NH
