Repentance WI5 M4-5  NH : * Ice and Mixed Climbing : Cathedral Ledge Ice Climbs
The route, the legend! Although Repentance has been outshined over the years in terms of pure difficulty, it remains an aesthetic and thrilling line with a satisfying combination of ice and rock. Navigating the finishing chockstone, with nearly four hundred feet of air under your feet, is unforgettable.Right of the Cathedral Cave, you will spy a continuous flow of ice choking the rock chimney of the same name. Get there early or late, you don't want to climb beneath another party on this one....[more]   Browse More Classics in NH
