Description

North Percy Peak is located in Northern New Hampshire on State lands on the Nash Stream purchase. This prominent peak looks more like a Tuolumne Dome near Yosemite Valley in California than a typical Eastern Mountain. North Percy Peak has a very obvious slab on its South West face that can be clearly seen from many miles away. This slab is the climb.

• From Groveton, NH, take a right off of Route 3 to get onto Route 110 East’
• After 2.6 miles on Route 110, take a left onto Emerson Road.
• Follow this road for 2.2 miles (passing one intersection with signs) until the road makes a sharp right-hand turn.
• At this point, turn left onto Nash Stream Road and follow it for 2.7 miles to a small, signed parking area on the right.
• The Percy Peaks Trailhead is 50 yards farther up, on the right, and is signed.
From The East:
From Berlin take Rt. 110 NW to Stark. Turn right and take the North Side Road thru the covered bridge, [NOTE: closed for repairs 2015, if still closed contin ue on Rt 110 to Emerson Rd, see directions above.] turn left after the bridge and drive 4-5 miles north west to the Nash Stream Road on the right.

Photos

After getting lost once trying to locate the toe of the slab, a second foray resulted in capturing the following WGS84 MRGS GPS coordinates: 19T CK 06906 48140. +1 on the star rating of the climb & view from the top. Approach shoes are sufficient, single rope, light rack. BTW, on the approach, I dropped my Canon A590 camera (in a belt pouch). It's unlikely anyone will stumble thru the woods, following the same thrash as we did but just in case...the SD card would be nice to get back... Aug 16, 2015
