All the ice is about thirty feet high or less. The far left side has most steepest ice and some climbs will need trad gear. The far right has bulging with steep height ice and some ceiling dry point neighboring ice potential. Think environmentally friendly first to the exposed moss ledges, please. The ice is thick enough and it has height from this year's drought, possibly?
These climbs are short workouts and have problematic moves, although only one has been recorded done, it is not for me too say any of these have not been done before.

Getting There 

Take the trail to the 5.8 Crag. Left side ice is at the cliff line and the right side is far up the trail right.

I did a high stepping out of there technique and got only the single crampon tip over the lip. That was good and plenty. It was done. No rope solo....[more]   Browse More Classics in New Hampshire
