Description

Rines Hill is located in Alton, NH. The cliff is mostly trad and has a few overhanging sport routes. The cliff is about 40 feet at the max. This is a great area for moderate crack lines. All the routes can be toproped from trees above. Lots of boulders in the area.

Getting There

update: We met the new owner of the land along the access from Rines Rd this weekend. He asked that climbers stop crossing his land - use the approach from the road in to Knights Pond that Dale K has described.

Dale K approach: An easy approach that I used to use 15 years ago or so, when I climbed and hunted there. From the Knights Pond access road, at the height of land from the gate on Rines Road,( 40 yards or so) simply take a left and stay on the high point of the ridge, you bump into the rock eventually. My old trail has grown in but it might be time to re-establish it.
