The farthest crag west at rumney this crag sees little attention due to its distant location (though it is only a 20 min walk for the motivated climber) and unfortunate majority of poor quality routes... There are however a few nice routes thrown in between and a crack gem up the hill. As of the latest guide book climbs here range from moderate (5.8) to hard (5.12). There has been some retro bolting happening out here perhaps to make routes more appealing to the masses but there is still something missing from what looks like a crag with great potential. Perhaps we should count our selves lucky that it is a distant crag that was picked for this ill fate.

But here's how it is.Behind a big boulder leaning on a tree find a mossy, normally wet corner with two visible bolts on a slightly steep face. Climb the corner laying back crimping and stemming. The crux is pulling out of the corner on to a slab. It's pretty tough. I ended up with a finger lock and a handjam when pulling the crux bulge. After pulling t...[more] Browse More Classics in NH
