Description

The Cataracts area is a wide, scruffy cliff band with a great selection of ice climbs that continues to climber's left from the rock crag known as The Rampart. There is a great deal of easy ice climbing here, as well as some harder routes and variations, which makes it an excellent location for first timers.

Right Cataract is a large area of somewhat indistinct low angle flows, as well as a few steeper flows tucked up in the back corner.

Left Cataract has a good selection of moderate slabby climbs with many variations as well as some steeper climbs towards the far left, including "Everdrip" and "Neverdrip."

Getting There

This approach is the same as for the Rampart.

Park along the side of Route 52 at the trailhead for the Old Carriage Road. Follow the trail for a ways and take a left at the fork. The trail will cross over two small bridges, and as it turns to the right and begins to go slightly uphill, look for a small cairn and climber's trail heading to the left. Follow this for a short distance to the base of the cliff band. The climber's trail will deposit you near the base of Right Cataract. Left Cataract will be, of course, to the left.

NOTE: After discussions with a "local",the GPS co-ordinates for this location were moved slightly to the East on 9/15/16 and are approximate. RHall ME, Admin.
