Though I wouldn't describe this area as an "alpine" area, it is very exposed and could be very cold in bad weather. The approach is somewhat technical and to retreat from some of the upper routes requires a rappel and some technical 4th class downclimbing.
Park at the top of the notch in a plowed out parking lot, just south of the Crawford Notch visitor's biulding. Many winter trails leave from this area as well. Walk south along the railroad tracks to the bottom of the area in which you plan to climb.

A fat flow with many variations. A sixty meter rope will barely make the rappel with a creative party, but two ropes is much easier. The position of the climb offers a great view of Mt. Webster's west ridge.The area may be a better option to rappel from the Upper Hitchcock Gully if a second party is waiting....[more] Browse More Classics in NH
