Participant Information

On my continuing tour of East Coast ice climbing destinations, next up is the Catskills, New York. Exact climbs TBD depending on weather, conditions and skillset of participants. Leaders and followers welcome, but please, some ice climbing experience is expected. Must have own equipment (ice axes, mountaineering/ice boots, technical crampons, harness, HELMET).

No helmet, no climb.

Plan is to leave Montreal before daybreak and drive South - US border crossing, so bring your PASSPORT.

Here is a list of possible climbs and destinations. http://catskilliceclimbing.com/history

NOTE: if conditions and weather don't allow for the Catskills, we may alter the destination to the Adirondacks (NY), Franconia Notch (NH) or North Conway (NH).
