Ice Climbing: New Hampshire (The Flume)

Looking to get some laps in on steep terrain? Put up a few top ropes. Climb short and long steep pitches.. Come on out and climb with us...!

Ice Climbing: Top Rope Laps at the Flume.

NO Helmet = NO climbing....!!!!!!!!!!!

If the gorge floor is sufficiently frozen over, let's have a top rope party at the Flume up in Franconia Notch. The Flume is a great place to get more familiar with ice climbing. It is also a great place to get those laps in for those looking to build strength for leading steep ice.

The Flume is generally user-friendly to newer ice climbers, though it is preferable that you have swung a pick into ice before and know how to belay folks on ice TR. 

FOR EXPERIENCED CLIMBERS: Please let me know if you can supply extra top rope lines or equipment! We will be able to do more climbing and less waiting the more lines we establish!

Waiver:  Read !!!

    Coming from Boston and more than happy to car pool. Are the pitches too steep at the flume to get by with horizontal front points (havn't invested in front pointing crampons yet)?

    March 12, 2014

    • Courtney D.

      Scott, you will get by with flat points. But you'll definitely notice the challenge.

      March 14, 2014

    • Scott C.

      Thanks for the info Courtney. I have climbed in vertical front points before so I am sure I will notice the difference just wanted to see if the terrain was manageable w/o them.

    Anyone interested in car pooling? I noticed a few of you are south of me in the Boston area.

    March 11, 2014

    • Steve J.

      Yes! I'll be coming from North Cambridge on Saturday morning and would love to share a ride (either as a driver or copilot/gas contributor). Email me at [masked] if you want to organize something. I also have a rope and plenty of heat for a top rope set up (no screws).

      March 12, 2014

  • Kristian Kobbenes S.

    Me and Mari will bring a 60m rope. As for car pooling we are probably going up friday evening, and to North Convay sunday. If anyone would like to hitch a ride up friday, just let ut know.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
