The G Spot is a mostly sport climbing area on three slightly forested separated tiers, lowest, middle and upper. The central ice comes in a similar way, having one main vein of ice separated into three directions of ice left, center and right (facing the cliff). All flows are separated by tree slopes covered in snow. The left branch is shortest. Its a twenty foot corner that comes off the upper tier and does not make it down any further than that. The right branch is called 'Boulder Problems' and was the first route we did. It starts right of 'Drip of Fools' the rock climb. Drip of Fools is a nice big frozen drip and the bolts could get you part way up it or more but it will likely scar the rock. That shouldn't be done.
If doable park at the not plowed Main Cliff parking lot or park at the plowed parking lot. At the not plowed parking lot hike directly up from the east side of the lot a couple of hundred feet and your at the Approach Slab cliff line. This is an open area and uphill east are routes reachable by the G Spot trail. It is best to get to the twenty to thirty foot western ice from the Orange Crush trail. This ice is easily visible from the trail and its a easy traverse to its base.

Climb the narrow curtain of ice after dry tooling over bulges. More technical than strenuous. Very grade dependent on conditions. This ascent was severe. The climb can be mostly ice except for passed the tree. I've seen this flow a while and the ice practically disappears above the tree. Here there are grasses and dry point technique is needed instead. The ice gets thick again at the finish. ...[more] Browse More Classics in NH
