Hoffman Notch has some real nice ice about 2 miles in from the Blue Ridge Road side. IIRC, there is no walk-around to set up a TR but there are some easier lines to lead (WI2-3) scattered about. There are really no open view but it is a beautiful valley with a stream running through it.

Directions here: http://www.adirondackrock.com/newrou...#Hoffman_Notch

None of the ice routes are published yet but I believe they will be in the new ice guide coming out soon. There is a binder at the climbing gear counter at The Mountaineer that has some route info for HN in it.
