Description

A short, forested area tucked into the woods just above West Side Rd in North Conway. Routes vary from traditional slab to very steep sport and mixed routes. A great place for moderate top-roping with easy access to the top of the cliff and many trees for anchors.

Getting There

Drive north on West Side Rd past Humphreys for 0.7 miles. There is a dirt pull-out on the left side of the road and a ledgy outcropping above this. There is also easy access to the Saco from the same pull out which is on a bend in the road. The cliff is hidden in the trees.
Hike up the steep and dirty trail for about two minutes (very short) and you are there.
