From ice climbing’s humble beginnings with roped climbs up the Trap Dike and Chapel Pond Slab in the 1930s, on through the landmark visit of Yvon Chouinard and the unveiling of his thin-modern tools in 1969, to the inspirational visits of Western stars like Jeff and Alex Lowe, and on to the latest adventures of local climbers up in Avalanche Pass, Blue Lines tells the stories and describes the routes with a history of Adirondack ice climbing, notes on grading and safety, and maps and photo illustrations to show the way.
