After walking over the trestle you get to a passage that was blasted away when they put in the railroad tracks... The left side wall Hosts a few fun short ice climbs and some good practice routes for dry-tooling... For the most part this is a top rope area but some of the routes do protect fine...

Climbs here range from WI2-4 and M5... I'm not sure if any of the climbs here have specific names but if they do please post them...

Just beyond the trestle cut on the left there is a wide open slab that is great for Practicing low angle ice...

Getting There 

Walk across the trestle and there you are... Short steep routes on the left wall of the cut, the slabs are through the cut on the left...

Featured Route For Trestle Cut/Trestle Slab

Trestle Cut left mixed line M4-5  NH : * NH Ice and Mixed Climbing : ... : Trestle Cut/Trestle Slab
A nice introductory mixed route. Start under the small tree two thirds of the way to the top of the cliff, on the far left side of Trestle Cut. Walk up ice slabs to a rock chimney (between wall on the left, human-sized horn on right). We found rock on the left, and thin ice on part of the right. Some mandatory dry tooling, then options. Head straight up the chimney, then up the steeper ice on top....[more]   Browse More Classics in NH

A week ago we set up topropes for 3 routes in this area, and 6 of us had a great time trying all the routes a couple times. The lines were thin, but they went, and it was a lot of fun! The area is very easy to access,. the best approach to the top to set up TRs is on the right side of the cut, past the slabs. Be careful up there, a slip could be deadly in spots! There was already webbing on a couple of trees up there above two of the fullest routes. The farthest left route had a rap ring as well. It was a great place to get alot of climbing in.
