Mixed Emotions. February 14, 2015.

Beginning February 1st and lasting until July 31st, a section of the Nockamixon Cliffs Natural Area in Delaware Canal State Park will be CLOSED TO ALL ACTIVITY. MORE INFO >>>

Description 

A good long pitch starting just right of the main parking area that accesses Hidden Gully.

Location 

Walk 50 ft right of the main parking area. Bask in the glory of roadside ice climbing in PA.

Protection 

The route has a few bolts, some of which can be hidden under the ice depending on conditions. The day the photo was taken the gear was a bolt, a stubby, a bolt, and a column sling. There is a bolt on the right about 30ft up and another can be found underneath the ice about 3 feet left of the crux (the first of two small curtain/columns). I was not able to find the other two in the conditions shown in my photo. Four pieces in 130 ft is sparce, but the rest of the route climbs much easier than the curtain/columns where the gear is better.
