Ice Climbing: Frankenstein Cliffs ( Intermediate - Advanced )


Frankenstein Cliff’s has waterfall ice routes ranging from low angle and easy to very steep and difficult all crag style of climbing. I have done a lot of my steep ice climbing here.

Classic steep ice climbs at Frankenstein include Standard Route, Pegasus, Dracula, Chia and too many others to mention. The short flat approach about 1 mile along a railroad track and numerous super fat ice climbs make this one of the best and most user-friendly places to go ice climbing in the East. Most climbs are multi pitch climbs with a walk off to the north west along a packed out decent route.

I will keep the RSVP at 3 climbers 3 person teams. As leaders for multie pitch climbing or a leader able to set up top-rope options RSVP I will add folks from the waiting list.

 

Climbing Teams:

The usual, as lead climbers sign up for this Meetup I can add additional followers.

      Never got confirmation, so decided against making the drive and risk not being able to climb. Maybe next time...
