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.

Begin on runnel with a tree frozen in it. Narrow with fun moves on solid pick holds. Hook tree and exit to next ice flow. Above that move far left on ledge (rock climbing trail) to reconnect to main flow. Move up this to a big belay ledge with trees. There are enough trees for anchors. On the 110 foot first pitch I only used trees. I could have only used screws. The second pitch goes over a bulge and then goes left with the ice becoming less and less until snow is taken to the top for a belay fr...[more] Browse More Classics in NH
