Yellow Knife is an out of the way crag that sees so little traffic that the holds normally don't even have chalk on them.Wow.Very un-Rumney-like.
Follow directions to the Hinterlands and continue left under the gully and you will find it.Or follow directions to Prudential, and it's the next cliff right of that.

Climb the corner laying it back till you can gain good stemming this is a tricky section that is tough to onsight. You will gain a nice rest as the arch leans left.reach right to clip a bolt and make a reachy (or thin) move right out of the overlap. Technical Climbing will get you out right to a corner and another rest. Climb the corner using a fingerlock and a few awkward holds. Mantel the ledge and clip the quick clips to the left.I give the climb 4 stars due to its beautiful flow and interest...[more] Browse More Classics in NH
