First ice climb this season

Elvira and I have just joined the Harvard Mountaineering Club and last Saturday we joined the club for their annual Intro Ice Climbing trip. Albeit the ice was still a bit thin we had a great day where I tried to climb New England ice for the first time in my life. We went to the Frankenstein Area at Crawford Notch, New Hampshire which is 2.5 hrs drive from Boston. It was quite a distance to drive for one day's climbing - but it was certainly worth it. I look forward to going back when the ice has built up more to climb some of the classics such as Dracula. Wonder how they came up with these names..... Anyway, click here to see a slideshow of pictures from the trip.
