A scenic crag pretty high up the mountain. Not a bad place to be when the lower crags are crowded and it's not real hot out. Some of the routes are pretty much in the full sun and some are shaded when the trees have leaves. Mostly, the crag feels hot and dry on sunny days. The climbs that I've done here tend to be technical but a little burly strength helps out too. Also, there is a rap station at the far left of the crag which brings you down to the Yellowknife crag. It's obvious to look at but some of the climbs on the left side of the crag start from a big ledge, with a big drop, so be careful.

Getting There 

1. Hike past the Jimmy cliff left side (clip a dee do daa) up a bit and farther, maybe ten minutes or so.
2. Climb the fixed rope in the gully from the right side of the Hinterlands, I recommend approach no. 1.

Featured Route For The Crow's Nest
Scotty on Ill Gotten Booty during a hot summer day

Ill Gotten Booty 5.9+ 5c 17 VI E1 5a  NH : Rumney : The Crow's Nest
This route looks cooler than it is, but because it looks so cool it's still not bad. It appears that a lot of the flakes have come off making it somewhat awkward in sections. Many of the flakes that remain are glued in place, which is somewhat interesting. Also, I recommend rappelling the route (or having a second follow) because it can be hard to clean while being lowered....[more]   Browse More Classics in NH
