Description

Undoubtedly this is the most-climbed of the AREAs in Kinsman Notch. When I first visited this area only two years ago it was not easy finding where the climber's path left Rt 112, even knowing it was just across the street from the AT parking lot! Once on the path, it was not that easy to follow, and we even missed the turn-off to "Little Crack Land" !!! (Yes, it was that obscure just 2 years ago!

Today (2016) the grass is well worn and the path totally obvious.

Six crags, two quite "major", make up this AREA. (Although, when I was last there climbing, Jon came down the path saying something about "a new climb on a new crag"!)

The Crags are: 1) Little Crack Land and 2) Lost River Crag, 3) Bull Pen and JJ Slabs, 4) Russian Arena 5) Lower Patina Wall and 6) Upper Patina Wall

Getting There

Park at the Appalachian Trail parking ($5 fee or pass) [or at the unpaved Beaver Pond parking.] Directly across Rt 112 from the far right side of the exit (where there used to be a STOP sign) look for the path through the grass into the woods.

GPS is set to the entrance of this path.

Go to the specific (sub)AREA you want to get to for the continuation of these directions.

There was a forest fire here in October 2017 that burned through the climbing area. There are multiple burned / downed trees above much of the climbing. I have no idea what fire does to fixed pro. There are some pictures of the area post fire here: neclimbs.com/SMF_2/index.ph… 3 days ago
