Ice, 350 ft (106 m), 3 pitches,
Avg: 2.8 from 31
> Adirondack Ice…
> D: Keene Valley…
> N Face of Pitchoff
One of the longest moderate routes in the Adirondacks. The ice is thin and low angled for the first pitch to reach a tree belay on the left side. Above here the ice steepens a bit to reach the trees. The climb can be extended for another pitch by traversing right, or walking through the trees to reach another headwall on the left. The rap down from the left is tricky since the terrain is wide with no trees. Either make a short rap to a lone tree below the third pitch from which double ropes should get you down or be prepared to go way left to reach the trees before reaching the end of your rope.
Traverse left from the large tree at the base of Tendonitis along a sometimes steep and icy slope to the huge base of the Weeping Winds slide
