Description 

The Geriatric Wall has mostly one pitch routes on it. Not a bad place to go if you want to knock out like 8 to 10 pitches of moderate climbing in one day. Do not go when it hot out because the swamp makes this place unbelievably muggy....I found out the hard way.

Getting There 

To get there follow the trial as if you were going to Cake Walk, When the trail forks take a left. The trail brings you below Cake Walk.

Featured Route For The Geriatric Walls
Rock Climbing Photo: Tree Keys

Tree Keys 5.6 4c 14 V 12 S 4b  NH : WM: North Conway : ... : The Geriatric Walls
Find the tree close to the cliff with a key embedded in the trunk near eye level, on the cliffside of the tree. The keyring has broken off of the key (and it is sometimes replaced) so you may need to look hard for it. The route ascends a dark brown slab starting from the tree. Climb the lower slab to the blocky 4th class ledge, then climb the outside corner hanging overhead. The route touches both faces of the outside corner. A routefinding extravaganza!...[more]   Browse More Classics in NH
