The Slabs.


The north end of cannon has a vast low angle area where smooth slabs meet steep overlaps and lead to a dramatic headwall. Lakeview and Consolation Prize are fun and popular among others.

Getting There 

Walk across the foot bridge and go right along the stream until you can break left up hill on a climbers trail. This leads to talus and eventually the slabs.

Condescender 5.11a 6c 22 VII+ E3 5c NH : Cannon Cliff : 5. Slabs
The sustained, tenuous friction climbing on this one will leave your noggin tired, if nothing else. The rock is superb, and the crux is well-protected. I put the R rating for the runout up top, where the rock quality is a bit poorer and the protection scarce, but the climbing is easier, maybe 5.9 or so.Hard friction takes you straight off the ground to the first bolt, which you'll pass diagonalling right to the sloping horizontal ramp. Clip the next bolt, traverse right to the end of the ramp,...[more]   Browse More Classics in NH
