Small crag in Franconia with some single-pitch climbs, WI3-5. Hard to put up top-rope here, so bring rope-guns. Also possibilities for mix and drytooling.

Getting There 

Park at the Cannon parking, cross the highway using the bike path north of the parking. When the path turns to the left, head straight up towards the ice following a small flow. The ice can be seen from the parking.

If you haven't been here, it's not entirely clear from the "Getting There" description that this feature is on the East (Lafayette) side of the notch, in a small amphitheater just north (left) of the huge avalanche scar. [ Which has slid many times; in 1953 (+/- a yr or two) a rock avalanche covered Rt 3 for a couple of weeks. ]
