Description 

Found Ledge is a great little obscure crag hosting some cool looking old school sport routes, slabs, and quality crack climbs. For the White Mountain obscurist, Found Ledge is a fun find.

These routes don't get climbed much, don't expect the most perfect granite, and remember, scrubbing cracks that look like they haven't been climbed in 20 years is fun.

Getting There 

From Conway, drive 4.9 miles west on the Kanc to a pulloff on the south side of the road. The pulloff is 1.2 miles east of the Albany Covered Bridge. Look for the big obvious downed tree and walk diagonally left into the woods on flat ground. Turn right uphill following the right bank of a stream bed that gradually widens into a cleft. Follow this drainage straight to the cliff. Look for massive boulders. should take about 30 minutes.

I am excited to see what this place has to offer.

Do the boulders there look like they have anything good on them?

This is a great cliff and it would be a good public service duty to sort the approach out and give the crag some loving.
There is not a bad rte on it with all types of climbing except slabbing.
I remember the boulders being high (15/20ft?) with a few problems.

Chinos-Sure. It's a somewhat lengthy process, so it might take some time before I can get to it.

We found it faster to bushwack from the parking to the cliff it only took like 25 to 35 minutes, and it was a flat walk if you followed it along the hillside.We also had a GPS

APPROACH- As per given in "GETTING THERE", but then,rather than "follow the drainage" to the cliff, the following route has a good trail: After about 10 min. hiking up the right side of the drainage (reasonably clear in 2013), cross to the left side (going uphill) of the stream at a large cairn and climb the open, left slope on a climber's trail. After 10 min. or so, this curves to the right arriving at a relatively flat area. Trail splits: go left for Little Slab and straight ahead for Dunn Boulder, reaching the LEFT (West) side, NOT the Right side as shown on pg 45 of Handren's guidebook. This approach was cleared and flagged as of the summer of 2013.
