Looking South on a hazy morning
This area is marked by the very striking sharp ridge on the left side of cannon. There are a few very good routes here the main event being the classic Whitney-Gillman Ridge and its many variations. at about 600' tall this is a smaller outing than those routes in the middle of Cannon Cliff.
walk down the paved path below the cliff past the big block with the sign across form it and look for a cairn on the right. Follow a trail through wood and up in to the talus field to the base of the ridge.

Perfect hands in the back of a really tight v notch. Climb up this with great gear up to a small roof, pass this on the right to a stance. Up 10' of tight fingers and another 10' of perfect handcrack to the ledge. There is a slung block to belay from. We did this as a one pitch climb, it does connect with WG, but that is for another day. If you like handcracks, this is second only to reppy's on cannon!...[more] Browse More Classics in NH
