The CMC Crag (Chinos Mountain Club Crag) is located below White's Ledge in Bartlett, NH. The area is made up of two different cliffs 150 yards down hill and left from the Pick O' The Litter Cliff. This is a fun moderate crag with most routes in the 60' range. The climbing here is mixed, so bring a rack to a #3.
This is a great summer time crag with a short (5-10min) approach and the river nearby.
Drive north on 302 to Covered Bridge Lane,which is on the right just before the covered bridge gift shop. Follow Covered Bridge Lane, staying left at all intersections until you see a dirt road on the left, Ricks Road. Follow Rick's Road for 0.8 miles to pullout on the right at a old logging road. (Just after a pullout on the left hand side over looking the river). From here walk the road for 300' to a small stream on the right. Follow the stream bed uphill through some boulders to a 25' slab wall. Walk left along the base for a 200' hundred feet to the base of the crag. (5-10 min approach from the road).
Weather station 5.2 miles from here

Look for the obvious chimney on the left side of the crag. Climb up the left facing corner into the big chimney. Pull over the small roof to a large horizontal crack. Traverse a few feet left to a massive jug. Continue up the featured headwall with cracks to the top. Use a tree for an anchor....[more] Browse More Classics in NH

It's a very enjoyable place to go an climb. Most of the cliff is in the shade, so it's a good place to go on those hot days.

Checked this place out today after hearing good things about it @ IME. It's great, a fun change of pace in the North Conway area, beautiful spot, really casual. Definitely hit it up. - If you're here and have the time the cairns need some work. The trail up is along the road bordering the river, and the most obvious trail. Very short approach.
