You say that winter is boring?  Nothing to do around here?  How about climbing up a frozen waterfall in the Hudson Valley?  This video shows some guys working their way up Plattekill Falls.

They say Ice climbing is easier for beginners than going up the side of the Gunks!  Seems ice gives way a bit and that makes it easier to climb.  That's what scares me.  The "gives way" part!  The Bolger blog is always making suggestions for you to entertain yourself around here:)
