Sundown Ledge Rock Climbing
Andrew pulls the roof on Romper Room.
This area encompasses all of Sundown's many separate cliffs: The Main Cliff, Lost Horizon Cliff, The Outback Cliff, The Far Cliff, and Gill's Groove Crag.
Sundown Ledge is really the centerpiece of the Kancamagus climbing area. While probably 90% of the climbing activity is rightly focused on The Main Cliff or Lost Horizon Cliff, climbers who venture off the beaten path will be rewarded by solitude, and in some cases, some of the best climbing the area has to offer.
All of the Sundown cliffs can be accessed from the parking lot by the Albany Covered Bridge. This is located where Passaconaway Road (aka Dugway Road) intersects with the Kancamagus Highway.

Climb the dike to the base of the roof sporting a 4 inch jam crack. The start is a little mungy but should clean up. Hand jam, fist jam, scum, stack, and whatever else you feel like doing out the off set crack. A nice ledge and a fixed anchor awaits after you pull the lip. You can walk/scramble to and fro this ledge. ...[more] Browse More Classics in NH

Every time I visit here I think "Wow, this place is f'n awesome. Easy parking, casual approach until the talus field and then it's only a few minutes of rock hopping to the cliff band, routes of all variety/difficulty, and some of the best sport climbing I've been on." Plenty of great trad lines as well. I'm always amazed when we have the area to ourselves on a busy weekend. :)

Anybody know what the bolted line is to the right of confederacy of dunces? I wasn't sure if it was an open project, but I couldn't find any information in the Handren guide or here.
