North Percy Peak is located in Northern New Hampshire on State lands on the Nash Stream purchase. This prominent peak looks more like a Tuolumne Dome near Yosemite Valley in California than a typical Eastern Mountain. North Percy Peak has a very obvious slab on its South West face that can be clearly seen from many miles away. This slab is the climb.

The neat thing about this climb is that you can combine a worthwhile hike with a technical rock climb and reach a real summit.
