This is a little cliff located 3 mins from the road in Woodstock NH. The cliff is about 100 feet tall at it highest point and has a general dome shape. There is evidence of climbing here but I dont not know the extent of it, but there are 3 or 4 trees with very old slings on them.

The parking area for Bryant Ledge is small only 2 or 3 cars can fit there so if it is full please respect it and dont park in the driveway that approaches the house. However, if you decided to go here you will probably have the place to yourself so parking should never be an issue.

Getting There 

Take I-93 to exit 30, turn onto route 3 north, follow for 5 minutes and Parker Ledge Rd will on your left park in the little pull off and the hiking trail leads right up from the next to the telephone pole.

Diagonal 5.6 4c 14 V 12 S 4b  NH : Bryant Ledge
This is the most obvious line on the cliff. Start at the base of the obvious large Diagonal crack. The crux comes when passing a cluster of bushes that stick out of the crack. This route is interesting because the feet are small your legs will actually get pumped. The route could use a bit of a cleaning, it has some lichen on some of the feet. If it got a nice cleaning it would deserve another star of sure....[more]   Browse More Classics in NH

I have climbed two routes here that we believe have been climbed before, one certainly has been climbed. I would like to get as much info possible about the routes, developers, history etc of Bryant Ledge.

I do know that people climbed here as early as the 1980's but I do not know to what extent. Please provide as much info as possible and I will add it to the description!

This is the dome you can see when driving on the highway, there seems to be much potential here!

I was shown this cliff by my friend who had a cabin nearly across the street from the crag, pretty cool little spot for an afternoon session. I would talk to john sykes, if anyone would know it would be him or jamie cunningham.

I wonder if this used to be (or is now) known as Parker Ledge. I saw it listed as this on one topo... and the street you park on is Parker Ledge. However, other topos list it as Bryant Ledge.

Climbing on this ledge goes back to the 70's it was the first place I climbed, and that was 1973. I was living in Woodstock just down the road. At the time there were rumors of Dave Tibbits and Howard Peterson spending some time there. These two were active on Cannon in the early 70's and lived in the area.
