Comments: Magic Ed lists this as 5.5 in his guidebook, which is way too generous. Most of this route is fourth class with just a few feet of super easy actual 5th class moves.

Comments: This climb is a cool climb that leads you up a neat feature, to a unique place in the park, but I feel like I have to add something to the route description-

Pitch 1 is basically 4th class. 5.0/5.1 maybe. Super blocky and low angle and easy.

Pitch 2 is more interesting, but goes at something like 5.3. Definitely not 5.7.

Lastly, I was able to rappel from the top of the climb to the base with a single 70 meter, so the climb is about 115' to 120' long.

The climb is cruiser, and I would recomme... more >>

Comments: As of January 2014 the route seems safe without a runout. Maybe a bolt was added? If you can find all the holds on the roof it also feels like... 5.7? I don't know. The jugs are huge and about 6" apart.

Comments: This rock's been climbed for generations now. The routes are so obvious and old that the FA's hardly matter, it's kind of communal at this point. That being said you might want to just delete your submitted routes with their names, rather than try and put your stamp on the rock.

Comments: The water at La Posada at least is totally fine. Everyone fills their water bottles from the tap.

Comments: Hey - anyone who's climbed this in the past, what's the story? Before we climbed this I called around to every guide outfit in the state and besides the winter ascents of Maine Line no-one knew anything about any rock climbing that had occured, but we found plenty of old gear and a mysterious shiny bolt line. Anyone have any info or stories here?

Comments: Checked this place out today after hearing good things about it @ IME. It's great, a fun change of pace in the North Conway area, beautiful spot, really casual. Definitely hit it up. - If you're here and have the time the cairns need some work. The trail up is along the road bordering the river, and the most obvious trail. Very short approach.

Comments: This last winter was a harsh one, most of the major formations near the entrance to the park lost rock, including the bolted face. Be extra wary of potentially pulling blocks out and rock instability, the park is going through a period of extra loose erosion / rock fall.

Comments: Yeah, there are rap stations on the cliff for rappelling with a 60 meter, the upper one is about 15' climber's right of the top out of the whole climb.

Comments: Hey, this is the rap station for the top of the cliff, not the top out for Charlotte's crack. The 2nd pitch of the crack goes up the wide crack and ends at a couple of trees, about 15' climber's left of this rap station.

Comments: Definitely a cool place to climb though the trail is a little vague. The hike up alone is worth it for the cool / different views of the Potrero and Hidalgo.

Some of the routes are starting to have vegetation reclaim some of the holds, you might get a cactus tickling your face.

The chains at the top of a lot of the climbs are bleeding rust and very rusty.

Comments: This crag should be taken off the site. It's eroding, it's unstable, and its prominence is attracting some vain FA wannabees, as shown by Silas's account.

Comments: The quarry across the street from the base of the cliffs owns the land now. We've never had any trouble being low key, but the guy who owns it may wind up blasting the cliffs again. He hasn't yet tho.
