A fun little ice crag with a few worth while lines... Actually all the climbs that regularly form are really nice , then there are some obscure mixed or less reliable routes that are worth doing if they are in, but not classics... Crowds can sometimes an issue on weekends but midweek its a nice secret stash... The biggest challenge is the parking situation which is often changing... The roads are narrow so parking on the sides of the road is out... There was a small parking area a little north of the cliff that was recently developed by the owner of the property... Word on the street is that the owners of the lot are cool with you parking as long as you ask... If anyone has more info on parking please post...
From south take exit 23 and head west on route 104 to the town of Bristol... At the town center take a right onto Lake st. (route 3A)... Follow this till you can take a left on to West Shore Rd.... Follow West Shore with the lake on your right till you see the ice climbs on your left (its a pretty obvious cliff at the top of a short steep hill)... Drive by the crag and the parking area is the next spot on the left... Ask Permission to park unless you know you can do otherwise...

The line of weakness up the middle of cliff to the top... Really fun and typically fat...Climb up on to the slab and head for the corner of ice above... The difficulty of the crux steep section is very dependent on conditions... sometimes it feels 3+ sometimes a soft 3 but always cool... After the business of the corner the angle eases up and you can cruse moderate slabs and bulges to the trees and belay from a tree with fixed rap rings...There is a fun variation where you break left before the ...[more] Browse More Classics in NH
