Description 

A steep, clean, alpine crag well worth the visit. When looking up at The Eaglet, from I93, this is the very smooth and steep looking face of rock just to the left. There are three routes up this intimidating face, the most moderate being "Salt Packed Pig Sack (5.8)," which is the center-most line. This crag has a remote and alpine feel, despite being only a 20 min hike from the highway.

Getting There 

Follow the approach as for The Eaglet. Once you reach the beginning of the talus, and the first cairn, look for a second trail of cairns that branches off left. Follow this steep trail into the gully just below the obvious Flatiron.

One of the best 5.8s in the notch. If it's your first time at this crag, you'll probably look up at this route and say "5.8?? AND good pro??" This route is rather steep and exposed, but with good protection that you cannot always see from below. Take special care with route finding, as there is some loose rock. From the anchor, climb up and left to the first of two bolts on the face. After the second bolt, climb fairly directly up the face (some route finding necessary) past a pin, and the f...[more]   Browse More Classics in NH
