The ice flow north of the large buttress.


A series of mini ravines, vera-glass slabs, a very narrow gully, and N.E.I.C.E flows. Best in the morning because this east facing section on Mt. Osceola doesn't get afternoon sun. It also tends to get storms stuck there as they pass through the giant obstruction of Oseola Mt.

Getting There 

Before the pond the area becomes visible. Keep going a little further until you can't see it anymore and head up west diagonally to this area. The climbs furthest south are hardest to find direct access. Very hilly. Its about 2.5 miles from the parking lot to Greeley Ponds from the Kanc.

It doesn't matter this is the area the climb exist.  <br />  This has been a very lean snow year, so far.

The pillar may be in a very weakened state from this drought.

This crazy thing looks like a straight on sight fat pillar but it got a surprise ending sometimes. The surprise is a deep vertical gutter at the top with less than a inch walls surrounding the gutter's sides. There's no place to sink a tool. There's plenty of ice though and you'd have a great screw placement before the gutter has to be hand jammed at 5.8 rock grade for 10+ ft. I was no rope soloing and I couldn't have been in a more perplexing position. Burned out arms from the pillar and suspen...[more]   Browse More Classics in NH
