Nice ice climbing in a pleasant location. Generally not as crowded as Frankenstein. The Slab area is really moderate and the Amphitheater has a variety of moderate to hard climbs. The nice thing about the Amphitheater is that it is sunny and generally sheltered from the wind. Several hundred yards up the hill from the amphitheater is another great section of WI2-3 flows.

Getting There 

Drive up 302 into Crawford Notch from North Conway, about 6 miles form Bartlett. Park at the Davis Path parking lot on the right side of the road. Cross the Saco on a small suspension bridge, turn left and follow the river. Look for the Amphitheater crag uphill on your right. Continue along the river several hundred yards until you can see the slab, again uphill on your right. Usually there are trails beaten-out to both areas.

Some chicanery involving stemming or thin ice on the left-hand wall (crux) gains a narrow chimney. Placing screws and generally moving upward through this bit can be a struggle depending on conditions. Squirm up and out of the chimney, up easy snow to a tree ...[more]   Browse More Classics in New Hampshire
