Description 

Just left and slightly up hill from The Meadows is a small crag made up of three mini walls and in the middle is one of Rumney's finest 5.11s (Apocalypse Later 5.11c). This area contains sport routes from 5.4 (Kate's Arete) to 5.12d (Bad Seed). It shares many of the qualities of the Meadows, being shaded in the summer, and having the same rock quality since it is part of the same band of rock. The big difference is that it is much steeper than its close neighbor making the routes a bit harder. This area is the place to go for 5.11's if you don't like to hike.

I personally like that it is close to the parking lot but doesn't seem to get the traffic that the Meadows gets. So if I'm doing a quick session on a busy day I can run over to Apocalypse, warm up on Serenity Now (5.7) then run up some quality harder routes and be back in time for tea.

The left most side of the cliff is usually wet so I suggest a rope bag or tarp.


Getting There 

From the main lot, walk down the road for a minute or so and turn right up a trail toward the left side of The Meadows. Follow the trail to the left up the hill for another 30 seconds and you are there.

Apocalypse Later 5.11c/d 7a 24 VIII E4 6a  NH : Rumney : Apocalypse Walls
What a great climb. I can't get on it enough. If you are looking for a project at this grade or just looking to warm up before a day of hard projecting, this is a must do. The route climbs the 45 degree overhang with killer huecos, then breaks right on to the vertical crimp fest. Start up the short slab and on to the steep inverted hueco covered face. Move quickly and fight the pump, because you need to make a move to the right to gain a crimpy face and it can be a pumpy experience if you wear...[more]   Browse More Classics in NH
