At the South America Wall you will find a nice selection of trad climbs. About fifty feet tall and lots of fun this area has a good variety of natural lines. Some gear is needed on all the routes here, a single rack should be fine for most of the routes .

Getting There 

Approaching from the hiking trail turn right just before reaching the ledges. After a short walk through the forest the first route, South America Flake can be seen, and is very hard to miss, it starts atop a walkable slab.

One of the most stunning features I have ever climbed which tops out to a picturesque New Hampshire mountain scene. The line was pointed out to me many years ago by a friend and I never forgot about it. A perfect corner with one black wall that is nearly featureless and dead vertical and one white wall that is steep and has decent holds but only just enough.The route can be broken in to 3 sections: -It starts with a big move to a sloping ledge and a mantle to a no hand rest followed by a tricky ...[more]   Browse More Classics in NH
