"The Dump" is one of Southern New Hampshire’s lost and forgotten Crags. No, this is not a major climbing destination, but if someone is looking for a crag to get away from the crowds, a quick workout after work, doesn't want to drive/hike into Pawtuckaway or up north this is your spot.

The Dump is a short crag that runs parallel to an old rail line, used for access, which sits high up on the side of Dumplington Hill. It ranges in height from 12' to 50' and offers a wide range of climbing from 5.5 to 5.12. Most of the lines are stiff for their grades but fun nonetheless.
All the lines have been either lead on gear, TR and possibly soloed. All the gear lines have gone free expect for one aide line. Some of the lines make for some spice boulder problems Vs gear/TR routes.

Ethics of the crag is no bolting or pins.

Getting There 

Take 101 to ext 6 to Raymond, take a left onto RT 27/107. Proceed to Langford Rd. Turn left on this road, travel until you come to to Depot rd. Take a left and drive for about a 1/2 mile till you come to an old railroad crossing. Parking is on the right.

From the parking lot walk left along the railroad bed for about a 1/2 mile (20minutes), you'll be able to see the crag from the rail bed and you'll see a faint tail joining the rail bed at about this time. Walk up hill and your at the Left End of the Crag.

Descent little crag. Great, if you consider the location and distance from everywhere in southern nh. It's great change of pace from p-way, stone house, and the southern Maine crags. Some really good existing lines, TONS of potential if that is your thing. Minimal bugs. The crag needs a little tlc and traffic.

The bolts have been removed after talking to the First Ascent members. They were fine with leaving the top anchors in but seeing that both lines Zach Attack and The Hang were both done on gear, on the FA, that they didn't need bolts.
