This is the most dramatic line on the cliff and one of the better pitches in the Adirondacks. At the right end of the cliff, this climb forms on the summer "Black Wall". Climb straight up for 80', passing a large ledge off to the right. Follow easier angled ice on the arete to a steep column which ends at the top of the cliff. The lower sections are well shaded so this climb is likely reliable. It is possible to escape right to trees before the exposed final column if that were baked.


Ice screws, rappel from trees

This ice route follows (more or less) the summer route "Sausage Science", which ends on the ledge. The ice route stretches the rope to the top of the cliff. Feb 9, 2017
