One of the better-explored cliffs at Silver Lake, the Summit Cliff is positioned up and left of the Tsunami Slab. The Prow Area has a high concentration of high-quality crack lines. On the right end is Twilight Falls, which is in the Blue Lines ice climbing guidebook.

Getting There 

Park at the Turnpike Road Trailhead, and follow the logging road, aiming for the Tsunami Slab. Once in front of the Tsunami Slab, follow a skid path uphill until in front of the Summit Cliff. Once in front of the cliff, you can cut right to the base of the cliff from anywhere, but there are some flagged paths, if you can find them.

An amazing route, sustained, high-quality. Climb thin ice on slab to ledge 30' up, then stem violently up the unrelenting corner to top. Crux at the bottom of the corner where it overhangs.The cliff faces south, but the ice deep in the corner is usually good....[more]   Browse More Classics in NY
