If you can't tell from the route names Hotter than Hell, Inferno, and the like this is a very warm southern exposed cliff. On a summer day it can really live up to the route names...However in the late fall and sometimes winter you can have a pleasant day when the weather is way too cold for other crags....
A long pretty trail curves through boulders to get you to the far end of the cliff for this area...Pick the trail up just after leaving the parking lot turn right follow it for a while you will see the south buttress getting closer... You will arrive under inferno's start...Have fun...

Interesting climbing with a powerful layback c...[more] Browse More Classics in NH
