the Horn, the classic line on the upper cliff...
Crack climbs galore.... Some of the best, single-pitch cracks in New Hampshire "lead em' and weep".... A few, less-desirable, face climbs between the cracks normally top roped.... The Uppers is a shaded area that is nice on a sunny day but takes a while to dry after rain....
Please stay on trails to reduce impact....
That's all that needs to be said killer quality cracks from 5.5 (Double Jam) to 5.13 (Bean Pole Crack)....
Classics: The Roof 5.7, Obscene Phone Call 5.8, The Horn 5.9, but they are all good.
Above the lower slab.
Follow trail around the left side of lower slab and continue till you see the cliff. Or follow signs from the trails on the right.

This one seems to get harder every year...Though it is graded 5.7, I still feel like I'm going to fall every time I do the first moves.... The foot holds have been polished to a marble finish by years of use, you're welcome for the excuse, now forget the grade and climb the route 'cause it's still fun no matter how slippery the starting feet are....Climb the crack up under the roof place a few good pieces and follow the crack out right and up to a ledge, find the good feet.... A great climb with...[more] Browse More Classics in NH
