DescriptionThe CMC Crag (Chinos Mountain Club Crag) is located below White's Ledge in Bartlett, NH. The area is made up of two different cliffs 150 yards down hill and left from the Pick O' The Litter Cliff. This is a fun moderate crag with most routes in the 60' range. The climbing here is mixed, so bring a rack to a #3.
This is a great summer time crag with a short (5-10min) approach and the river nearby.
Getting ThereDrive north on 302 to Covered Bridge Lane,which is on the right just before the covered bridge gift shop. Follow Covered Bridge Lane, staying left at all intersections until you see a dirt road on the left, Ricks Road. (Unmarked, but it's a dirt road starting between two I-beams.) Follow Rick's Road for 0.8 miles to pullout on the right at a old logging road. (Just after a pullout on the left hand side over looking the river). From here walk the road for 300' to a small (seasonal) stream on the right (if stream is not visible, aim straight uphill staying to the right of some small moss covered slabs, until reaching the stream bed). Follow the stream bed uphill through some boulders to a 25' slab wall. Walk left along the base (stay low for easier walking) for 200 feet to the base of the Main Cliff crag. (5-10 min approach from the road).
