Description 

Just left and uphill from the main cliff, you will find a micro crag called the Venus Wall, known in the rock season for its hard crimpy routes like Venus In a Halfshell (5.12c), and also easy beginner routes like Dirtigo (5.3).... In the winter, there are two killer ice flows here the giant flow from the middle of the wall called Selsun Blue( 4) and in the gully to the right, The Cave Route (3)... a few other mixed routes, variations and rare flows here, but those two are the classics....

Getting There 

From the small parking lot, walk the road west.... Take the first trail you get to (you can see Selsun Blue from the road) up the steep hill until you get to the left section of Main Cliff (Armed and Dangerous area).... Head up hill to the right...You will see Selsun Blue very soon....

Selsun Blue WI4  New Hampshire : * Ice and Mixed Climbing : ... : Main Cliff Left--Venus Wall
The huge flow up the middle of the cliff....Really fun, one of the best ice climbs at Rumney....Melts a lot on a sunny day but rebuilds well most nights....Easier if you start at the left and work right following the lower-angle moves.... Probably WI4+ if you go straight up the steepest parts...Like most ice climbs the difficulty is subject to conditions....This is a really nice place to be on a winter day looking out from the cliff top at the Baker River and hilly landscape...Reminds you what a...[more]   Browse More Classics in New Hampshire
