Dartmouth Skiway D.O.C. parking lot for non skiers. This is mandatory parking to know your at the ledges. Details
Holts ledge is being ice climbed without issues. What has changed radically is the approach. Presently access is only by going up from the Dartmouth Skiway D.O.C. parking lot for non skiers. This is mandatory parking to know your at the ledges. Access is by the Papoose cross country ski trail to get there. I didn't know of this trail or I would have notified MP of this place long ago. Access became a issue in the late 1980's when there was private land development. Anyway are enough of us to find out anymore details from the D.O.C. about climbing there.
DescriptionDeep recessed near vertical wall of green plastic like and glassiness hard surfaced ice. Psychological ice screws. Its usually in this condition or worse. It's snow melt fed primarily. Once was enough to lead it for me. I felt green after it. It was easier to no rope solo it a year or so later.
LocationSouth of Spiral Staircase is a large left facing corner. The opposite wall to the inside of the corner is it and it usually is tinted green ice.
