Jeff’s Wet Dream/ Chasm area 01-12-10

My intention was to climb Moore’s Bridge and head over to Viola Ravine and finish on Hilyer Ravine.  Sometimes things just don’t work the way they are planned the day before.  Brendan and I opted for the no approach, ice climb in the Chasm below Palenville Corner deal.  We rapped in over a WI 4 M4 fun top rope problem.  The mixed climbing is really cool with good ice above the nasty rock section.  Just to the right of that climb is a FAT WI 2+ gully that is a fun lead right now.  We walked down to Jeff’s Wet Dream after climbing both of those routes.  Jeff’s is in great shape with a couple of variations to climb on it.  Afterwards we walked upstream to Moore’s Bridge checking out all the different little climbs along the creek.  Once frozen over this is actually a very interesting hike.  Make sure you pay attention to the ice depth.  It wouldn’t be hard to break the ice and fall in to the creek.
