Just found this link of Steve House enchaining an unroped solo of two of New Hampshire's proudest ice lines, Repentance and Remission on Cathedral Ledge.

http://video.patagonia.com/...pentance-Remission-2

The camera work is awesome; brought me right back to those thin runnels on Repentance. I never did get on Remission as an ice climb (only in Summer...) but the film really gives a good taste of the experience.

Enjoy!

Dude that second pitch of Repentance is arguably the finest pitch of winter climbing in the northeast. It's great practice for the crux section of Shaken, Not Stirred on the Mooses Tooth. Almost exactly the same feature, but of course on the Tooth the crux runnel is over 300' long!

Huh, not sure I've ever seen Steve House looked as sketched as that before. I mean, at the chockstone. He was definitely not psyched with that jamb.

For many, particularly ice specialists, the moves past the chockstone are arguably the crux of the route; insecure jamming considering the conditions and the usual scenario of having gloves on.

I seem to remember turning it on the right and that it wasn't all that bad, but at the time (and still today) I was a much stronger rock climber than ice climber.
