Upper Cliff Rock Climbing
the Horn, the classic line on the upper cliff...
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.
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.

I'm not sure of the history of this climb. I figured I'd put a name on it cause i think it's one of my favorites on the cliff right now and I want others to check it out. If anyone knows if it has a real name please let me know and I'll add it. I will post a photo topo soon.Between Bishop and Climbers Corner there is a narrow chimney, climb the chimney until you can climb on to the face hand traversing 8 feet right on good holds.
