It’s been a while since I’ve been up to the White Mountains on account of baby number 2 coming into the picture in September. Between work obligations and our expanding family it’s been difficult to find “me time”. However, when my friends at Northeast Mountaineering offered an opportunity to tag along on a multi-pitch ice climb in Crawford Notch I could not say no! I had a little vacation time left in my “use it or lose it” bucket so I decided to blow off work and go for it.
I wasn’t totally sure what to expect for the day. I’m not a super experienced ice climber. The extent of my climbing has been pitches on some local ice, and indoor gym climbing. I was stoked to get on a multi pitch climb this early in the season!
