Parlee Brook Ice in Good Form

I don't think Parlee Brook could have worked out any better. I managed to tag into a good crew headed in there today and was glad I did. We started off by driving as close as anyone will ever get with cars. The walk to the top was less than 5 minutes rather than the typical 45.

Almost all lines are fully in. Sunbake, Kings Horses, Yellow, and Blue Pillars were lead. Temperatures were perfect and the ice was varied. Brittle in spots and completely hero in others.

A few shots of Marty Theriault leading Blue Pillar:

Also a shot of Shawn Burdette following me up King's Horses:

Also ran into this fella and spoke with him for a while. Turns out he's authored a book on NB's waterfalls and was just collecting some wintertime Parlee photos for his site:

Cheers. Chris.

  3. Looks like a nice day in at Parlee. I remember days where it took closer to 2 hours to get in from the top.
