Access Issue: 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.
Climb the usually free standing curtain (although it doesn't look like it) to access the slab and go for the same way as Committed. I remember Ted not putting screws into the curtain. It holds body weight fine and falling on screws could break it, instead of protecting the climber. Ted and I ended up repeating it as no rope solo together.
