Description

Very secluded high quality slab climbing, up to 3 pitches tall. The right side is shorter, with some steeper sections with corners and cracks. Expect to deal with some vegetation at the base of the climbs since the cliff receives few visits, but once above, the rock looks to be super nice almost white granite. There is plenty of room for new routing.

Getting There

See Glenn's maps. From the very small pull-off on the Kanc at 43.99704, -071.38081, ride bike back a few hundred yards to the river. Cross the river (usually knee deep) to a forest road connector and ride maybe 5 minutes to join Rob Brook road, bearing right. Continue on Rob Brook rd until you get to Swan's Junction, a large clearing with a kiosk. Take a left there and bike another 5-10 minutes, crossing 2 bridges. After a clearing, look for a somewhat overgrown road up to the right at 44.02058, -071.41216 that takes you into large clearing. Go left, following this maybe 10 minutes to old logging landing on the right. Take the obvious opening straight ahead and bushwhack northeast.

If the river is unfordable, you will have to park at the other end of Rob Brook rd at bear Notch rd, and ride all the way up it until you get to Swan's Junction from the other direction (easy, but a long ride). You could also shwack over and down from The Alcove if you were dedicated and adventurous (easy to get lost the first time)

The pull-off is at 43.99704, -071.38081. I explored the cliff some on a wet day to find the routes. Kindred Spirits looked ready to go with just a minimal bit of cleaning needed at the start. Regurgitation needs extensive cleaning. My impression of the cliff is that the rock quality is high and there is potential for more good lines, but that they will require sustained effort to put them up, probably better spent elsewhere for now. If a party was going there regularly so the way in was fine tuned and beat out, the approach would not be bad, but right now it is kind of arduous. Sep 11, 2012

Ya a bit past Passaconway but before the historical house (name ? ) I think it's a bit faster but really only for the west side. May 8, 2010
I'd love to have more details on the routes. Its a 45 minute bike ride and a 30 minute walk. The pull off parking area is a bouldered off logging road a few miles west of Bear Notch Rd. The river is less than knee deep and close to the Kanc but not visible from it. May 8, 2010
