Description

The lower tier of Mt. Willard's south face contains climbs from WI2 to WI5.

Getting There

From the parking lot at the top of the Notch, walk the RR tracks south. After the tracks turn to the right/west, the first big open area on the right is Cinema Gully. The next, narrower open area is the approach to Great Madness and the numbered gullies (about 1 mile from the parking lot).

Winter Trains??? On Dec 17th, 2018 around noon I saw a single engine plowing the tracks through the "cut" at the top of the notch. (By Elephant Head) and can only assume the engine cleared the whole way from Bartlett through the notch. Later in the winter of 2018-19 the tracks became totally filled in.  Whether  The Conway Scenic Railroad ("CSR") might run winter (Christmas???) trains in years of low snowfall is not known. Act accordingly.  R Hall NH Admin.
