Description

Land owned/managed by the Monadnock Conservancy.  Much of the maintenance of the trails and hardware is thanks to Monadnock Climbers Association members. Be sure to support them.

Two bolted cliffs, one in the shade nearly all day. Total of about 20 bolted routes. Higher cliff gets sun after noon

Rock is metamorphosed granite with large crystals of feldspar.

Pretty solid quality, cracks and flakes sometimes feel like they're close to giving.

Parking is along the road, in a small dirt patch. Maybe 10 cars with more roadside parking up the road.

Dogs are allowed but should be under control, voice, leash, etc.

[ NOTE- see the COMMENT by Tim Greenwood Oct 10, 2018 for more info... R Hall NH Admin. ]
