Adirondack trifectas - 03/09/06 02:24 AM

So I was up in in the north country...actually ice climbing....holy crap. Anyway. We wound up doing Multiplication Gully, Roaring Brook Falls, and Chouinards in the same day and it struck me as quite the grade 3 trifecta. Multi was uber fat...never climbed it with so much ice up high. Roaring Brook Falls was basking in sun and more akin to climbing alpine ice. went very fast. Chouinards we simul climbed and went car to car in just under an hour. So, what do you folks think the grade 4 trifecta is for the Adirondacks? 3 top quailty grade 4 routes in a day.

Mineville Pillar
Cascade Ice Dance (good luck with that one this year)
Chillar Pillar

Sounds like it was an awesome day up there. Nice

You can do one right at chapel pond:

Power Play light

Cascade ice dance looks awesome, unfortunately the day we got to it, it was not safe.

Now, if you are shut down there, just cross the street and do sisters right.

For one climb per area, I'd lose mineville (great but just one pitch) and throw in one of the pond climbs.

Then again, when it's fat like it was at times this year, PT falls into the 4+ range. To do PP and PT in a day would be spectacular! No need for a third climb.
