    Wellington Park, Auburn, NH - Need snow and a few more cloudy cool days. Nothing too "leadable"

    Is it Wellington Business park in Auburn? I live in Hooksett and some local ice would be nice.
    Climb safe.

    Yup. It's right near Fischer Skis. I used to go up there all the time when I lived down the street. It usually takes just the right conditions to set up. There are some bolts up there too

    Sweet, thanks Dennis. Better than getting yelled at on the Hooksett ice. See you next week.

    Hey guys just a heads up.... me and my crew got booted out of Wellington Bussiness park last weekend. "That looks dangerous" "its a liability" were some of the comments..... Pergatory is a blast though i have also seen (but not climbed) the pillar at Pulpit rock in Bedford....needs a good cold snap to come in. enjoy

    I was at Purgatory today and the ice is much fatter now than in the photos at the beginning by ajcormier. There are a lot of decent (for Southern NH) lines up to about 25'. There are some free standing columns that are thick though were clear pure water ice that was a little dinner plate, but pick placement was solid and a little plastic. Tallest pure vertical is probably a 15' drip that has some flow above and below. This sheet is just to the left of the third Purgatory photo at the top. I brought my phone to take photos but forgot to take any. It looks completely different now than the photos and there is decent snow coverage on the ground...obviously.
