Looking south from South Tripyramid toward Sandwic...


High quality climbing in a quiet, peaceful setting by a brook. The routes here are generally harder in rating(i.e. not too much below 5.8). There are a number of both sport and traditional climbing, as well as some good top rope sites (used by the boy scouts at one time).

Getting There 

From Center Sandwich, take Sandwich Notch Rd. for a little over 3.5 miles (the road turns into a one lane dirt road). Although the climbs are located on a broken cliff band to the right, there are two main areas: Brilliant Corners Area & Highlander Wall.

Leading Left Diagonal Hand Crack.

Left Diagnaling Hand Crack 5.9 5c 17 VI 17 HVS 5a PG13  NH : Sandwich Notch : Pulpit Rock Area
The line that stands out the most at this area. Good protection after the first 15', which is tricky climbing (thus the pg13 rating). Carefully climb up to the start of the crack, then jam and layback to its end. Crux is near the top....[more]   Browse More Classics in NH

Does anybody have any other info on this area? Any info is good, Im curious about the boulders in the area as well as trad and sport info.

Also there seems to be a lot more boulders outside of this general area, does anyone have information about the bould scattered along sandwich notch road?
