Organizer: Jay Briscoe

The Team's: Everyone Gets Wait Listed..!
As always the size of the Meetup is based on how many people the area can handle & the number of lead climbers who RSVP for the Meetup....!
For each lead climber we pair you up with one experienced belayer and then we can add one newbie climber/Follower.
Its always the understanding that the "Newbie/Follower" as at a minimum has climbed before but just no capable for leading on Ice and also has knowledge of the climbing knots and all the gear required.
Sign up... First to RSVP is the first to fill a opening based on experience needed.
Don't forget no helmet no climbing!!! Period...
Frankenstein Cliff’s has waterfall ice routes ranging from low angle and easy to very steep and difficult all crag style of climbing. Which has more Ice options per mile then anywhere.
Plenty of ice for all ability lead climbers.
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.
Place a thread here on the board and see if others are willing...
You will need the listed Ice Climbing gear in the files section of our meetup page on line.
