Description

The Overhang Slide lies about 800' southwest of the Agharta climb on Mt. Marcy.
Pi Day features a wall of ice to the climber’s left of a large overhang at the top of the slide, distinguished by its dual overhangs at the base and top.

Ascend a 10’ high ledge to the climber’s left of the lower overhang. Continue up NEI 2 ice/snow to the upper overhang and belay. The hardest climbing is on the obvious ice flow to the climber’s left of the overhang. There are several potential lines of varying difficulty.

Location

On the east side of Mt. Marcy. Continue 800 feet southwest of Agharta.

Protection

Ice screws. Belay at the top of P1 in trees or from the ice. Belay from trees at the top.
