    I have been doing some work on E-Guide over the summer. With the help of Jim Lawyer I have mapped out the Ice Climbing areas for Blue Lines 2 by Don Mellor. This is an interactive map. Zoom in, move around and click the icons for details. Explore new areas to climb ice, get driving directions to that area. Topo and satellite views are also available. Area and climb descriptions can be found in Blue Lines 2 by Don Mellor.

    The intent of E-Guide is to get you to the different ice climbing areas of the Northeast. If you have corrections or want to help with E-Guide contact me.

    Excellent start! Thanks to both Doug and Jim. Blue Lines and Blue Lines 2 are great, but I think having some kind of web presence is a good step forward, especially as many new routes and areas are still being developed.

    I have not edited this in any detail, and I know it's a "work in progress." Right off the top though, a few minor things:
    >It's Don, not Dan.
    >Ensign Pond Road Ice climbing area is missing from the map.
    >Knob Lock and Lock Ness area locations are reversed.

    When I have time, I can look at this some more - I like this idea!

    I poked around the map a bit more. Looks like the map has net yet been fully populated. Well known areas that are missing include: Palisades, Hoffman Notch, Panther Gorge, and Pharaoh Mountain. Also a bunch of more obscure areas should be added: Honey Pot, Johnson Pond, Wanika Falls, several others.

    Keep going! I like this resource. Another thing you might want to add would be a link to a text list of the locations. The "zoomable map" format, where the details don't appear until you zoom, is not always the best format for everything people might want to do.
