Once the best kept secret at Rumney, now the secret is out and this is a popular destination for many Rumney climbers.... Routes from 5.6 to 5.12c many of them with sickening exposure for single pitch routes.... At the Hinterlands, you will find what you are looking for for sure. The cliff has steep pumpy routes, slabs, technical faces, and even a few cracks...you will find sun and shade on the same day, and in the winter you can even climb rock and ice on the same day, what more can you ask for?
The best way to get there is to pick up the trail from the Blackjack Boulders up to Triple Corners Wall...then head left and up a steep hill and a gully with a fixed rope in it...continue your way up the steep hill to the Hinterlands cliff...Climb over a log an you are officially there.... To the right is a slab capped with the huge roof of Giant Man (5.12b/c) walk left and down to get to Jolt (5.10b)....

Giant Man 5.12b/c 7b+ 27 IX- E6 6b NH : Rumney : The Hinterlands
As you approach the Hinterlands, Giant Man is off to the right in the little alcove up the hill. It is a very recognizable route, dominant and steep, bulging over the top of a 55 or so foot slab. The slab section is 5.7, enjoyable, following a neat-looking dike that tapers the further up you get. Pull up onto the steep after clipping the anchors for the .7 and pull on the biggest jugs that could ever exist for about four or so moves. The mid-section is where it starts to get harder, traverse...[more] Browse More Classics in NH
