L to R R to L Alpha
The best pure friction climbing in the Northeast. Often run out and bold but always fun and exciting. Routes like Sliding Board and Standard Route see the crowds, but I've never climbed a bad route in this area....
From the hotel parking lot trail entrance, walk less than a minute to the HUGE slab in front of you.... Just to your right is the Beginner Route (5.5). Slightly up and left is the launch pad. Further left you will find the other slab climbs like Sea of Holds (5.7) and many more....

Beginners Route 5.5 4b 13 IV+ 11 MS 4a R NH : Whitehorse Ledge : 7. The Slabs
The Beginners Route is just as fun as the Standard Route but sees far less traffic mostly due in my mind to over sight by folks that are just used to climbing the Standard, also there is a bit of a committing section on the 5th pitch where you are required to run it out a bit on friction... So if you are very comfortable on Standard and you think you could keep your wits about you for a pitch of run out 5.5, next time you hit the slabs give this one a try, it really wont let you down...Pitch 1: ...[more] Browse More Classics in NH
