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
