Description

The Sununu Place is probably the trashiest of the White Rock basalt cliffs, and hosts 2 short sport climbs. Garbage and other debris from above is present around the base of the climbs. The quality of the rock itself is much better than it appears. The area was developed by Cam Burns and Paul Fehlau.

The one major positive quality of the Sununu Place is that it is centrally located near some other finer crags, so if you get crowded out at one of those cliffs this is a good place to escape to. It's immediately under the Old New Place, on the same level to the south of Below The Old New Place, or can be reached easily if hiking up from Gallows Edge.

Be concerned about people above you at the right end of the Old New Place inadvertently knocking rocks.

Like the other cliffs in this area, Sununu Place faces southeast and sees morning sun and late afternoon shade.

In the early 90s, the hangers were removed from these climbs and replaced with old homemade hangers; Scott and Joshua replaced these with modern hardware in early 2012.

Getting There

Approach as for the Old New Place, then scramble down from the north end of the ONP to reach the Sununu Place.

Yeah, Luke and I put our oh-so-fine angle-iron hangers on these routes. I really hope you don't die...

Seriously, the hangers are about the same quality as the routes. I'm not sure why we went to the trouble. This place is only worth a stop if you're really bored. Just my opinion, of course. Mar 22, 2009
