Main Cliff Left--Venus Wall
Ernie Hansche on the Cave Route...
Just left and uphill from the main cliff, you will find a micro crag called the Venus Wall, known in the rock season for its hard crimpy routes like Venus In a Halfshell (5.12c), and also easy beginner routes like Dirtigo (5.3).... In the winter, there are two killer ice flows here the giant flow from the middle of the wall called Selsun Blue( 4) and in the gully to the right, The Cave Route (3)... a few other mixed routes, variations and rare flows here, but those two are the classics....
From the small parking lot, walk the road west.... Take the first trail you get to (you can see Selsun Blue from the road) up the steep hill until you get to the left section of Main Cliff (Armed and Dangerous area).... Head up hill to the right...You will see Selsun Blue very soon....

At the top, you step back left and tackle one more steep bulge.... There is a tree at the top with rap rings....A very fun climb.... I'd call...[more] Browse More Classics in NH
