There are probably several ways to pitch this out - what follows is one way. The pitch numbers indicate how the guide book lists them.P1+2: From the "toe" of the cliff, hike 15 or 20 feet left and climb up a moderate corner. There will be a large ledge to your right - continue straight up aiming for the huge tree. Belay from the tree. (>100 feet)P3: Climb up and slightly to the right toward the next big tree. The steep bulge is best climbed on the left up the vertical weakness. Prob...[more]Browse More Classics in NH
I took the 2nd, shorter approach, as described in the Webster guide and found it surprisingly easy. 4/10 of a mile past the Y intersection you will see "Ricks Road," a dirt road that follows the bank of the saco. Follow this road until you see an old logging road w/ a small pullout on the right when you are directly below the cliff. Park, and follow the logging road (along with pipe cleaners wrapped around sapplings) until you find the cairns that will lead you up through the talus to the base of the cliff. 10-15 mins for the hike in this way.
Chris, if you actually follow either of these directions you will get there no problem, its a little more difficult to comprehend in writing than when you are near the cliff, one really cant get "lost" as you can see the cliff most of the time off of the dirt road along the saco.
Allow ~30 minutes for the approach. Park at Mt. Stanton trailhead, walk ~150 yards from the trailhead, past the right-hand curve then take a left off the main trail onto the easy to miss orange-blazed trail. Follow the trail for about a half mile until you are "under" the cliff, then start your bushwhack uphill. The forest is wide and open and easy to navigate. When you reach the talus under the cliff, follow the cairns to the base.
