Lick Brook requires a permit to ice climb. Details
Lick Brook is managed by the Finger Lakes Land Trust. To climb here, you need a permit from the Land Trust that shows $5,000,000 insurance coverage for liability and property damage. Cornell University has such coverage and takes groups of students regularly.
DescriptionThe lower falls of Lick Brook. About 65' high depending on conditions. Can hold 3 or 4 top ropes depending how they are set. Left side is generally easier than the right side. As seen from the beta photo, there aren't that many trees for toprope anchors. One good one for the left hand side and one about 50' back on the right. Bring ice screws or lots of static rope.
While you can walk into the base of the lower falls, there's no easy route to get to the top (without a rap from the top of the canyon walls).
