Access Issue: Beginning February 1st and lasting until July 31st, a section of the Nockamixon Cliffs Natural Area in Delaware Canal State Park will be CLOSED TO ALL ACTIVITY. Details


This is the second left most climb of The Narrows. Unfortunately it is unreliable and if it comes in, will come in late in the season.

Pitch 1: The bottom pitch is made up of tiers that the ice rarely touches down on. These are hard to protect and the rock quality isn't very good to put pro into. If you don't want to climb this pitch you can scramble up to the left and traverse across a ledge to the second pitch of the climb.

Pitch 2: The ice is usually a better on this pitch. Continue climbing up to the top where you can rap off of a big tree.

Decent: Two double rope rappels will get you all the way to the bottom.


From the parking lot walk left along the cliff. You will pass Main Flow and this will be the next climb that you come to. Its not right beside Main Flow. You should see a 45 MPH sign along the road. This is the start of the climb.


Standard Ice Rack, Some Rock Pro for the bottom section might be good.
