Platte Clove Ice Scramble

Platte Clove is a deep ravine located in the Catskills. Water that gathers on High Peak Katerskill rushes off the mountain forming a deep chasm which rushes into the Hudson River. In the summer its waterfalls create deep pools which can make for some excellent cliff jumping and swimming. However, in the cold winter months the stream comes to a standstill giving thrill seekers the chance to test their skills on crampons and ice axes. The Devil’s Kitchen area is a favorite spot for ice climbers. However many adventurers try their hands on the waterfalls leading all the way to the bottom of the ravine.
