Deep Notch has a lot of beginner ice routes. I don't think you can top rope them as I don't know any walk around trails. Most routes are between grade 2 to 3+. Check "An Ice Climber's Guide to the Catskill Mountains" for more details.

One thing new leaders should be aware of is that a lot of the top outs are dirt and rock unless it's a really good year. This means the last two to three moves can be very dicey, scratching on rock.

Getting There 

Take exit 20 of I-87N. Then Route 32N to 32A, make a left on 23A toward Palenville. Make the left onto 42. Drive pass the chain-link fence, about 3/4 miles down the road, there is a parking area.
The routes are above the chain link fence and to the left.

Mr Dolittle's Hotel WI2-3  New York : Catskills (Ice) : Deep Notch
It's a fun and easy climb. It has two parts, separated by a large ledge. Even thought the grade from guidebook is 2+. It's still fairly steep but short. If you go up left, I think it's 3, if you stay to the right, it's 2+....[more]   Browse More Classics in New York
