Description 

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.


Getting There 

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.

Whitney Gilman Ridge 5.7 5a 15 V+ MVS 4b  NH : Cannon Cliff : 1. Whitney-Gilman Area
