A scenic crag pretty high up the mountain. Not a bad place to be when the lower crags are crowded and it's not real hot out. Some of the routes are pretty much in the full sun and some are shaded when the trees have leaves. Mostly, the crag feels hot and dry on sunny days. The climbs that I've done here tend to be technical but a little burly strength helps out too. Also, there is a rap station at the far left of the crag which brings you down to the Yellowknife crag. It's obvious to look at but some of the climbs on the left side of the crag start from a big ledge, with a big drop, so be careful.
1. Hike past the Jimmy cliff left side (clip a dee do dha) up a bit and farther, maybe ten minutes or so. Make sure you pass to the left of the little bouldering size wall with the hand crack. Going to the right is the descent trail from the top of Clip a Dee Doo Dah. You will be trending up and left.

Ill Gotten Booty 5.9+ 5c 17 VI 17 E1 5a NH : Rumney : The Crow's Nest
This route looks cooler than it is, but because it looks so cool it's still not bad. It appears that a lot of the flakes have come off making it somewhat awkward in sections. Many of the flakes that remain are glued in place, which is somewhat interesting. Also, I recommend rappelling the route (or having a second follow) because it can be hard to clean while being lowered....[more] Browse More Classics in NH
