To the right of lower Whiteface Mountain is a cliff containing several good lines of ice
A bit problematic - located adjacent to the Whiteface Mountain Ski Area -park in the extreme farthest lot from the road past the "Kids Kampus" areas. You can get there by taking the main entrance and turning right at the lodge and keep right until you reach the last lot. The approach begins in a drainage behind a white trailer at the uphill left side of the lot. It is directly beneath a maintenance area with a metal container used as a shed. The drainage is actually a mountain bike trail - keep straight on the trail and do not follow any side junctions. Eventually you will see a talus field below the cliff. Bear left and follow a wide drainage to the left of the talus field to reach the base of the climb. An alternate but longer approach is to walk up the right most ski trail at "Kids Kampus" called the "Bronze" trail and turn right onto another mountain bike trail that comes out of the woods. Follow this to just beneath the base of the climb. The approach is at least 30 minutes and may require snowshoes in deep snow conditions.
