Ganoga Falls Amphitheater, Ricketts Glen State Park - January 30, 2021

Randy Edelman and I took a trip to Ricketts Glen, and found the conditions on the right side of the Ganoga Falls Amphitheater favorable to put in a few laps. We mostly climbed various lines on the Cradleboard route to the far right of the amphitheater. Dutch Eagle and Savage still need to touch down, and War Bonnet needs to fill in. Ganoga Falls itself, is filling in nicely, but still has open water flowing over top of the ice. The left side of the amphitheater looks like it would go.

The 2019-2020 ice climbing season was a bust. In Central Pennsylvania, it never remained cold enough for the ice to fully come in. Lets hope for better conditions this coming season.

Feel free to check our Ice Condition Archive Pages located along the right sidebar to see what we can expect if the weather cooperates. Please use this site and to assist you in determining where to climb.

HELP WANTED! Please help keep this site up to date. Use the conditions form listed on the "Submit" tab above, or email your Pennsylvania Ice Climbing trip reports and photos to and I will post them
