Description 

Remote single pitch ice route up on Mt. Lafayette.


Getting There 

LAFAYETTE PLACE TRAILHEAD (1780'): The Lafayette Place parking lot is the trailhead for the popular Old Bridle Path and Falling Waters Trails. This trailhead is located right off of I-93 near the northern end of Franconia Notch State Park. It is on the east side of I-93, north of "The Basin" and south of Profile Lake where you can see the Old Man of the Mountain. This is about a 2 hour drive from the Boston area and just north of Lincoln, NH.

Pretty straight forward. Hike up the Falling Waters trail and break left for Shining Rock. It's soft ice thanks to the sunlight....[more]   Browse More Classics in NH

Has anybody done and rock climbing out here?

"Shining Rock" is actually on the slopes of Little Haystack (2 mtns south of Lafayette on the Franconia Ridge). And it's probably too low-angle for interesting rock climbing, though this being NH, I'm sure it's been done.
