Comments: The hardest moves (for me) were at the very start. Once past that, however, I found the route to be a solid 5.8 with a nice mixture of crack and slab climbing. We were lucky to be there during the "off" season. So we didn't have to wait in line, which is common during the "on" season.

Comments: I climbed this route and the one to the left. Of the two, this one is definitely more enjoyable.

Comments: Finding Mother's Crag is very easy. Once you reach the interpretive sign seen in the picture, it's very obvious. However, if you start walking in too soon, you'll be in for a bushwhack through a lot of very hostile scrub oak. So, once you spot the crag, keep walking along the road until you're facing it directly. At that point., you can head down into the wash. Look for a fairly wide break in the trees/bushes below the right side of the crag (where Dream Girl is). You'll be looking at wall of r... more >>

Comments: I'd been looking at this route for a while and finally tried it yesterday. However, because of my aversion to ground falls, I immediately backed off the start, which is a kind of alcove/corner/crack/chimney/whatever that leads to a ledge with a large triee. So my partner and I went looking for another way to access the ledge. We found one about 15-20 feet to the right. A nice seam goes up and to the left. You can practically walk right up it. Which is what I did. I then walked to the big tree, s... more >>

Comments: A fun route, but definitely not 5.7.

Location: NH : *Whitehorse Ledge : 6. Echo Roof : Promised Land (5.6)

Comments: Couple of things... the route is called Holy Land, not Promised Land. Also, if you follow the description of the second pitch in the Handren book (going left off the anchor and aiming for a hole where you can place a tricam), you will find yourself on Bulletproof, which is a 5.9. That route eventually hooks up with the second pitch of Holy Land, but if you're expecting 5.6 slab climbing when you start up, you're in for a surprise.

Comments: A few things of note...

The 4-U motel & restaurant is closed.
Valley View Restaurant a little further south on Rte. 33 does a decent breakfast.
Hellbender up in Davis serves burritos the size of your head.
Avoid the older section of Yokum's Motel at all costs. Appalachia Cabins, just north of Seneca Rocks, has a row of motel rooms that are much nicer (complete with micro wave, toaster, fridge, and coffee maker) and cost the same.
When they say that the ratings on Seneca Rocks climbs are stiff, ... more >>
