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.
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.

Past the last buttress with the big ice bulge (usually veraglass, super thick this year) is a hidden deep recess quite a ways south of it. At this recess is a large pillar (the crux). After the pillar enter the dike and continue up the steep chimney ice for another 130+ft. I never found it and that's good because there is no exit into the woods. No rope soloing this climb is a death wish. ...[more] Browse More Classics in NH
