DescriptionHounds Hump Ridge is home to a collection of alpine crags situated on the north east side of franconia Notch. The views are spectacular the climbing, fun and interesting and the weather unpredictable. So as usual in this area be prepared for anything. This also goes for rock quality, things can be loose in sections so be prepared and be cautious and you will have tons of fun.
The most popular destination at this spot is the Eaglet, the most prominent free standing spire in the east. Definitely a great outing. Don't overlook however the many other fun climbs along Hounds Hump Ridge where you wont have to wait in lines to get on the classics like at the roadside crags.
Getting TherePark at the cannon tram parking lot. Walk back under the highway heading east and pick up a trail just to the north (or you can head in to the woods and pick up the trail quickly) follow the trail south for a short way till you find a cairn marking a small trail heading left up the hill. Follow the steep trail up the hill through talus leading up to the Eaglet, head left or right and up hill to find other crags.
