New England Ice Climbing

Climbing is Dangerous

Climbing is inherently dangerous and the risk of death or serious injury can never be completely eliminated. It is up to each individual to make his or her own choices regarding acceptable risk. Tweetups are collaborative efforts with no individual organizers, and each participant only assumes liability for their own well being, just as you assume liability for yours! Cheers!



  Location TBD, but likely North Conway, NH or Lake Placid, NY.


Participants - Who's Planning on Going?

If you think you might be able to make it, put your name on the list with any relevant notes. (i.e. possibly bringing friends, etc. Hashtag: #


  • @PrivonG
  • @BlueFoxCA
  • @DevineClimbing - Anytime works for me, I like the Festivals though!
  • @k8tlevy - I don't have plans for any of the weekends below yet!
  • @vanizzle17 + @michelleackron - don't have any weekend commitments yet!
  • @wigirl4ever - depending upon the weekend chosen I might be able to make it work (FYI, I have never ice climbed!)




The dates represented are the Saturday of each given weekend. I'm assuming we'll make a long weekend of the trip with whoever can go, so keep that in mind. If a particular weekend works for you, put your name next to that date and update the tally. If a date doesn't work for you, leave it blank.

  • 14-15 Jan: (MLK weekend. Mountain Fest is usually this weekend in Lake Placid, NY. If this weekend is selected, we can either go to Mountain fest [good if you want to sign up for a clinic] or go to North Conway, NH [to avoid the crowd]. Mark your preference.)
