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.
Hike through the Blackjack Boulder and just keep going out the other end. The trail has gotten better over the years and should be easy enough to follow.

There was even a little chalk on it the other day when i did it.Start by clipping a bolt from a low ledge and pulling a boulder problem over a block to get on to the main buttress. The boulder problem is the ...[more] Browse More Classics in NH
