Lichen head. Me, with my usual weatherbeaten, lichen covered look from scrubbing a new route.

Comments: Anybody get the second ascent of this thing yet? I am curious if my grading after hanging all over it to prep was accurate and how people liked it. I enjoyed the finger pocket finish. Bring the handful of gear needed for 'Lectra Crack while you are in this bit out of the way area.

Comments: Did you climb the upper crack with you feet to the right, Tom, so you can get better jams, or did you try laying off it to the left?

Comments: Per Rob Hall's suggestions, I broke Mt. Willard down into sub areas. I have only climbed here once, so am not so familiar with the area. If anybody has any suggestions, corrections or more route information, let us know. Don't forget you have that blue 'Improve This Page' button. The area descriptions and directions could use some filling out.

Comments: John, I corrected this by redoing it from a route description into a sub-area (man you made a mess, lol) Now you can add individual routes under the heading. I was able to move the comments, but had to lose people's stars and ticks.

Comments: Doh! I should have gotten back on it on the lead faster :) It is a really fun route if you like thin technical face climbing, which I do.

Comments: There are actually a couple lines further to the left, that I did about 15 years ago, kind of a shallow wavy corner if I remember right, not very hard, V3 maybe, and a thinner thing just to it's right that I think I started as a crouch start. I wouldn't be surprised if the corner/seam was climbed before I did it. It is a pretty obvious line. I had it completely scrubbed clean and within two years it looked like it had never been climbed, lol. I never named them and can't remember the grades, so... more >>

Comments: I have been concentrating on the NE crags so far this season, as the new routing potential is more concentrated and the Main Wall gets blasted in the sun, so haven't been over there in a while. As of earlier this Spring it was all flagged for finding your way and pretty clear going. There were only a couple short spots where you had to push your way through branches. It is by far easier and quicker than going in the old way with bikes from the Kanc or Bear Notch. Figure about an hour and a half ... more >>

Comments: Has anybody given it a serious attempt since the hold broke? We need one of the North Conway boys to come and bolt on a big purple hold like they did at Sundown, :))

Comments: It is probably one of the most climbed routes at Rumney and being under an overhanging wall, rarely gets washed by rain, so yeah, it is chalky, but the photo saturation is overly suped up, which emphasizes it. Look how the colors are almost psychedelic.

Comments: Nice, Lee! I hiked down that way about a month ago, scoping possible trail routes from the Pit to the NWT for if the FS buys this area and was thinking the crag could really use a good trim and cleaning. There are some really interesting features there. I thought that Rainy Day route looked well worth a scrub.
