the Horn, the classic line on the upper cliff...

Description 

Crack climbs galore.... Some of the best, single-pitch cracks in New Hampshire "lead em' and weep".... A few, less-desirable, face climbs between the cracks normally top roped.... The Uppers is a shaded area that is nice on a sunny day but takes a while to dry after rain....
Please stay on trails to reduce impact....

That's all that needs to be said killer quality cracks from 5.5 (Double Jam) to 5.13 (Bean Pole Crack)....
Classics: The Roof 5.7, Obscene Phone Call 5.8, The Horn 5.9, but they are all good.


Getting There 

Above the lower slab.

Follow trail around the left side of lower slab and continue till you see the cliff. Or follow signs from the trails on the right.

The upper section of The Horn....

The Horn 5.9 5c 17 VI HVS 5a  NH : Pawtuckaway : Upper Cliff
Slippery feet and good locks....Start up the steep, finger crack using some polished feet outside of the crack.... A tricky crux section of locking and perhaps a layback move will get your foot on the "horn" feature and an OK rest.... One more crux guards the top out involving a high, right foot, some power, and grace....A very important climb for me....Probably the first "hard crack" I climbed, and it is still teaching me more than 10 years later...Climb it!...[more]   Browse More Classics in NH
