|Stony Clove - West Side
A fun, beginner-esque route that starts off with a short vertical stretch, then meanders up easy WI1+ to a series of short bulges in a left-facing corner.
To be entered later.
Standard ice protection. Sling trees for TR anchor. Be aware that this route is too long to be TRed with a standard 60M rope; either use a 70M, or extend the TR anchor at least 5-10 feet down from the top-out (15-20 feet from the trees). There are rappel rings located nearby; two rappels to the bottom, or use two ropes.
Pretty sure that's Ice Capades over to the left......

I had a 70m rope and couldn't reach the bottom on rappel. I had to setup a belay on a ledge about 10' to the left for my friends on TR.
The ice was pretty thin or non-existent for the easier slab portion on 2/27/2013.
NOTE: I'm pretty sure this is the climb I'm referencing but it was my first time climbing in the Catskills.

70m rope will get you down, with rope stretch.
