Hike to Sterling Pond & Watson Camp -
Ice Climbers on the Notch Cliffs
Page 2   ( Sterling Page 1)
 This seemed to be a good day for ice climbing on the famous cliffs of Smugglers Notch.  We met a number of climbers with their gear on the way to the popular spots, saw many well-trodden paths in the snow up the steep cliff-sides, and spotted a few high up the cliffs.

Climber #1 was climbing solo (crazy). Wide-angle image at left, indicated by arrow; zoom at right. Climber #2, also climbing solo, in what seemed a more precarious position.  He did not move for the several minutes we watched.
