Description 

Each winter, there are many classic ice climbs of varying difficulty on Cathedral Ledge.


Getting There 

All roads lead to North Conway, New Hampshire. From town, if you look northwest, you will see two cliffs. Cathedral Ledge is the right one, and Whitehorse Ledge is the left one.

Almost as little route finding as its neighbor Repentance. Great moderate drytooling gains thin ice to a good belay ledge. Directly off the ledge, a short but excellent section of rock-gear-protected ice climbing gains the flow coming from the intimidating column, and another belay off to the right.

You can rappel after the first chimney ends, or go for the glory hike down. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in NH

Check out the video of Steve House soloing both Repentance and Remission in the same day. It's impressive, for sure.
