These areas are often listed separately but they share an approach trail and are separated from all other sections of the cliff.
Located on a ledge above a slab to the left of the start of Recompense, access this area by hiking toward that route and breaking left up a small trail which will lead you straight to the huge corner that holds Browns Fist. Scramble one ledge up and to your right and you will find your self standing in the belly of the Beast Alcove.

Climb the strenuous corner crack as you jam, stem, layback, bear hug, backstep, kneebar (awesome), and protect your way to the guarding crux exit move. Heart Breaking! Try not to lunge for the anchor! Wildabeast feels hard the first time around! Keep trying, it gets better. A proud tick on beautiful granite!...[more] Browse More Classics in NH
