Multiplication Gully Ice Climbing

This is a classic moderate multi-pitch climb near Whiteface Mountain.It sets up differently as the season progresses, but this day it was sketchy and thin with sections of ice breaking apart under me. The hardest parts had the best ice--luckily. It's one of the venues with a deep backcountry feel even though it's only a 10-minute walk from the Ausable River. See the following link for a video filmed during my January 2018 climb.
