I tried my best to capture the essence of ice climbing in New Hampshire. Thanks again to my partners for breaking trail and sharing rope. Honestly, I don’t understand what’s wrong with us. Climbing ice is a ridiculous pastime, but seemingly, an ideal winter pursuit for crusty New Englanders. 😆 [full length video link in profile] #iceclimbing #nemguides #petzlgram #skyambitionsteam #northeastice ...

New England has provided. For the past few years it's been a blur of adventuring in the northeast. Thanks to everyone who has made it a good time, and/or taught me how not to die.
I'm headed out west for the winter, and I'm psyched. Let me know if any of you are in the salt lake area and want to get after it.

Baxter State Park

And they are open again!

Main gates at Togue and Matagamon are now open, as is the Lynx Road gate.

The Tote Road is gated at Abol Hill and Wadleigh Brook, and the Roaring Brook Road is gated at the sanctuary line.

We have a reported 3" of snow at the south end and the road is slippery in the tire tracks. Please use caution.
