Well, I thought I'd give this a whirl, Guess the ice route!
Keep in mind anything that Mike R posts will be easy to Guess. I already claim credit for guessing his correctly, Moore's and more Moore's. And to RangerRob, sorry about cluttering up the ice discussion with ski talk, maybe this picture can serve as my way of saying, "I'm sorry" I'll keep it free of snow from now on.

Its the Catskills, Looking at the sun angle I'd guess something in the hillsides of Katterskill Falls?

Not much to go on.

sun angle? SUN ANGLE? WTF Sun Angle? I dont see a single defined shadow. just a black outline of a climber and a hill in the background.
WTF Katterskill Falls. got anything else to pull out of your arse?

Yes, Kaaterskill Clove, I think you can see tree shadows on the hillside. Anyway, here are bigger hints...

Evan, you're as good at reading a photo as you are a map.

That ridge in the background is getting full noon-ish sun (so given the suns aspect in winter it must be a hill side facing South East)

Also mts in the catskills have a generally flat top, with steep hillsides with a mix of confer trees on the steep parts

If this guess the ice route is going to work the pics need to give a bit more context. the characteristics of rock don't change, generally. Holds stay the same, color, shape and texture all contribute to us being able to recognize a rock route given a very small snapshot of the route. Ice I don't think will work that way. I think they need to be a bit wider and give the overall shape of the flow, the rock behind it, hillsides in the distance, tree types, etc.

It might not work, but I'm bored, I have tendonitis and there is no snow or ice.

Gottlieb's Roof is Right!!!
Here's a pic from above...

Just because it didn't work for you, you have to dumb it down for the rest of us?

cfrac - Nice pics!
