Description

The arena on its west side has a thick 4ft+ pillar 30ft+ reaching to the ground free standing because it hangs directly off of the schist cliff deep cave like overhang (this arena could offer some new very difficult rock climbs and extreme mixed climbing possibilities). I top roped the pillar (WI5). To the east there is another wall of rock that has a very difficult 20ft+ chandelier lower section and a 40ft+ upper section again a free standing pillar ice flow. There is some WI1-2 short ice flows also here. This arena is dependent on weather conditions of the entire winter and is usually in towards the end of the season in February.

This area is also known as Slander Crag

Getting There

Traveling west on 25A a few miles from Wentworth, there is the Lower Baker Pond visibly south of the road. The ice climbing arena is above this pond on the north side of 25A, almost past the pond. Parking is on the south side of 25A at plowed pull out. Walking to the climbs is less than a 1/8 of a mile.
