Above Echo Lake in Franconia Notch State Park is a beautiful secluded cliff that should be more popular. Sunny and southwest facing with no apparent seepage and quality quartzy rock.

Getting There 

Break left and uphill just before you get to echo and follow the natural grade of the land the it'll bring you to the cliff. Keep on trending up and right and you'll get there. Early season is dry, but cold.

Natural High 5.7 5a 15 V+ 13 MVS 4b  NH : WM: Franconia Notch : Profile Cliff
One of the most popular routes at Profile. Climb easy rock up to a stance, below a right facing corner. Protect, and make a balancy move right onto the main face (crux). Continue up for almost a full ropelength to the top of Profile cliff and a 2 bolt anchor with rap rings (2 ropes needed to get down).The bolt you see at the beginnig of the climb on a steeper face is the direct start variation and goes at 5.9....[more]   Browse More Classics in NH
