Once the best kept secret at Rumney, now the secret is out and this is a popular destination for many Rumney climbers.... Routes from 5.6 to 5.12c many of them with sickening exposure for single pitch routes.... At the Hinterlands, you will find what you are looking for for sure. The cliff has steep pumpy routes, slabs, technical faces, and even a few cracks...you will find sun and shade on the same day, and in the winter you can even climb rock and ice on the same day, what more can you ask for?
The best way to get there is to pick up the trail from the Blackjack Boulders up to Triple Corners Wall...then head left and up a steep hill and a gully with a fixed rope in it...continue your way up the steep hill to the Hinterlands cliff...Climb over a log an you are officially there.... To the right is a slab capped with the huge roof of Giant Man (5.12b/c) walk left and down to get to Jolt (5.10b)....

DO NOT CLIMB JOLT. DUE TO ROCKFALL IT IS UNSAFE AND/OR NON EXISTENT. Many call this the best 5.10 at Rumney. Wildly-exposed climbing interesting fun moves on good holds, it would be hard to find anything negative to say about this climb. Its main feature is a crazy rock fin jutting out 80 feet above the ground you will learn to love this feature or you will find yourself catching big air.Starting on less-interesting, moderate moves you will eventually gain a stance looking up at th...[more] Browse More Classics in NH
