Does anyone have any information on the bald rock you see on google earth just north of loon mountain? I was standing on top of loon recently and thought there might be some route potential. Sep 8, 2015

Are you referring to this slab. Ive been eyeing it wondering if anything has been done but can't find any info. Might take a trip out there one day.

That picture is of Mt. Huntington, further east than what Ryan is refering to.

I ran in right at the end of the day to check it (Huntington) out, but have never climbed there. What I saw looked very chossy and vegetated, but I had very little time to explore, so may have missed the best rock. I have heard of people enjoying it, so it is probably worth going and having a close look yourself. It is not very far from the road, but bring your bushwhacking skills. There is a shorter section of rock up and right that I have always wanted to go check out. It is probably rotten and nasty, but it looks like a cave.

You might find some topaz up there johnbetts-fineminerals.com/…

Edit - Mount Huntington is now placed in the WM: Kancamagus (Central) region Oct 6, 2015

You might be talking about Lincoln Crag (which was accidentally located under WM: Kancamagus (Eastern).

Mark is right about Travis' photo. It does have a listing (I've heard folks having fun on Southern Migration and Perennial) but it could be argued that Mount Huntington belongs under WM: Lincoln Area. Hopefully this comment/link will help guide people to the right listing so the area maps remain accurate. :) Oct 7, 2015

No wonder I couldn't find anything. I was looking in the "wrong" area. Oct 7, 2015

Well, Huntington was placed correctly if you took my area map as gospel. I believe it's geographically closer to Greens Cliff than to Lincoln but I agree that most folks will probably logically associate it with Lincoln.

WM: Kancamagus (Central) is kind of a catch-all for a lot of the "outback" mountains in that area. Not that Huntington is far from the road (hell, it's in your face every time you ride the Kanc) but it's alpine nature makes me feel like it fits in with Bond Cliff, The Captain, and Greens. I think the Lincoln area would feel more fleshed out when MountainProject users submit their take on a lot of the areas Sykes/Cunningham have written about in Secrets of the Notch.

This is the master overview of the "WM:" areas. I'm happy to take suggestions on organization but please reach out via e-mail.
