South facing, getting plenty of sun; hence, it's very susceptible to rotten, sun-bleached ice. The area is easily visible from the road, and is generally fairly busy if in because 1) the approach is short (cross the street, up a small slope) and 2) you don't need to lead to get to the top. All the routes are single-pitch, in the 40-60' range. There are lots of lines, but there are no specific, named routes at the Asbestos Wall.

Getting There 

Go up 23A past Moore's Bridge, to the first parking area on the left. Park. Look across the road, and see the left side of the Asbestos Wall. Cross the street and stroll into the woods to see more. You can get to the top by walking all the way to the right side and up.

Asbestos Wall WI2-3  New York : Catskills (Ice) : ... : Asbestos Wall
Single-pitch ice, with a walk-around to set up TRs if you don't lead. Generally VERY busy if in, due to ease of approach and location. Ice ranging from WI2 to WI3, with potentially mixed routes depending on conditions. The ice is fairly consistent, but since the area is south-facing the ice is extremely susceptible to sun-bleaching - giving the ice the "asbestos" look. Best to climb here on overcast days....[more]   Browse More Classics in New York
