Description

This is the only "long" continuous flow of ice at the South Colton Cliff. Note: I am not certain if the route info of rating, name and FA are correct, there is no guidebook that describes this area that I know of, this was gathered simply from an off-hand remark in Adirondack Rock and the fact that this appears to be the only somewhat reliable ice climb. Any information is appreciated.

This essentially follows the rock climb "Climb It". The ice has been pretty thin every time I've visited due to sun exposure. Good conditions could make this more fun and lead-able.

Location

To the left of the big tree in the middle of the cliff. Its also the only legitimiate looking ice climb.

Protection

Toprope using a fairly long static. Trees are pretty far back from the edge. If it ever fills in then it could possibly take some pro.
