Ouray, RMNP, Vail... There seems to be a Colorado trend... Any other states have a good selection of mixed routes? Anything out east? alpinejason

Ouray
I use to live in CO and now live in NH.... as far as a high concentration of mixed routes in one place it's tough to beat vail or ouray. I haven't seen anything like it in NH or ME. BUT, there's plenty of ice out here!! Mike Willig

Hey Jay, Where in NH would you consider a good destination for mixed? I'm probably missing something. I'd love to check it out! Mike Willig

Trees.  Yes, trees.
I haven't found a "destination" mixed cliff, but there are many many cliff bands that ice up that offer mixed terrain between the ice. Are you looking for hard mixed or easy mixed?

Frankenstein has plenty of mixed climbing - you have to be willing to put it out there though.

If you're looking for mixed climbing for mixed climbing's sake, then try a buttress in Huntington or Tuckerman's.

Rumney is a big noooooo, they got all pissy when I suggested it last year.

New England is full of chossy crags that aren't good for anything. Set up a TR and make sure you're belayer is out of the way.

OK then, Vail or ouray are the definite front runners for a destination. It's tough to beat Vail... Mike Willig

This kind of makes me sad. I was hoping for something outside of Colorado. I've given them enough of my business in the past!

How about WY? Or, closer to home, Lake Superior area? I know there's some in Duluth or nearby, worth checking out?

hi
Oh yeah! Duluth, Nipigon, Kama, TB, and 10's of other random places on the north shore of the big lake. Also the east side of the lake has good climbing, but not as good as the north side. Check out Casket quarry on MP as well as climbingcentral.com and the alpine club of Canada's Thunder Bay web page and maybee Wes bender's ice page as well. All good places to start. Nipigon is a "mini" canadian rockies and has as good of craiging as anywhere but it can be cold as hell! jon jugenheimer

I lived in CT for 22 years...my friends and family all live there. I AM from New England..

I'm not talking about the climbing crags...I'm talking about all the railroad cuts and backwoods shale crags that ice up but that aren't worth anything.

Stay in Maine with your attitude...people like you are why I left.

Jeeze really?? For some reason I figured the Republic would be right up there. Could be they haven't gotten statehood officially, yet.

That was probably the product of a marketing ploy by the State of Utah.
