    The Searchmont Icewall is located East of the Searchmont Ski Hill. The climbing site is at the end of the old road near Hult Road at the intersection with the East West Snowmachine trail. The ice wall can be seen on the cliff at this junction.
    At present ,the ONLY ACCESS is by hiking east along the snowmachine trail, a 30 minute snowshoes or hike if the trail is packed. BEWARE OF SNOWMACHINES.
    There are many separate gullies and pillars. Access to the top is by following the pond to the left and then the flagged trail to the top. New slings have been placed on many of the trees along the top.
    Conditions are good and only get better until April.

    Access has now changed.
    Drive past the entrance to the Searchmont Ski Hill and Resort and turn on the first road on the right- HULT ROAD.
    Drive to the end and park. DO NOT BLOCK the snowmachine trail. Walk the snowmachine trail to the T junction. Go left for 26 meters to the trail going right. This takes you to the Searchmont IceWALL.
    Access to the top is by the left side. Follow the trail.
    New slings are across the top.
