The beautiful Peer Pressure


Peer Pressure is the most beautiful ice line at Avalon. The flow is so wide it offers multiple ways to go. Up the center and left side it stays with the book rating of 3, but the ice up the right side of the flow is steep and probably 4. After the steep ice the route continues up more moderate slabs to the trees above. 2 ropes or two raps will be necessary.


About 300 yards left of the main area tucked in the woods is the open section of Pressure Zone.


screws, slings, rap from trees

We made the rap from a tree in a single go with a 70m rope and had room to spare. Doing it in one rap with a 60m would be cutting it close I think.

If you rap to the left there are trees if you come up short
