5 out of 5 stars Best Ice Climbing on the Island

The Boston Falls area holds easily some of, if not the sweetest ice Climbing on the Island, and the line "Boston Falls" is easily the best of the lines in the area. Pitch 1 is about WI3 and takes a line just right of the main ice fall. Once the grade tapers, trend left, to the start of the long WI4 bulge that makes up the second pitch. There is a good belay behind the upper curtain. Climb the steep curtain to finish.
