If you go straight through to the back of the camping area there are some low cliffs that I think get some ice - it's worth checking out to see if there's anything there, you'll probably have it to yourselves.
Any idea which lean-to passed Marcy Dam? That sounds like something that would be awesome to check out.

And when everyone talks about the Avalanche Slide, are we talking about the south-west side of the pass or the slide on the north end? Heres a map I found, I'm familiar with the pass just not the common names of the different features: http://www.jimlawyer.com/Adirondacks...ap_Labeled.jpg

Thanks!
