Platte Clove Waterfalls 01-10-10

The ice climbing in the Catskills is great right now.  It almost has that feeling of peaking.  You can get on or too just about anything or anyplace.  I went back to Platte Clove on Sunday.  Every waterfall is leadable, with variations on each.  The creek is fairly easy to walk around on with a few open water holes.  The notches are in great shape as well.  The cold temps this weekend and a few warmer days this week will bring some fantastic ice climbing this weekend.  If you would like to experience ice climbing in the Catskill’s call 845-853-5450 or check out our website at

We also have a Catskills Ice Climbing Conditions page at
