Description

ACCESS-  ACCESS NOTICE - The North side of Kinsman Notch was the scene of a forest fire during Oct 2017.

Update 2019 -   Since the fire this entire area has seen extensive clean up and trail work by Jamie Cunningham and local climbers and most routes are climbable including all three pitches of Black Tourmaline.  The crags are all open now and expect to find lots of new growth ferns and small shrubs along the trail as nature takes care of the fire damage.  Jamie recommends folks bring in loppers (or hand clippers) and a small saw for any further trail and route maintenance. It also appears (to me) most bolts have been replaced...at least they all looked new to me on Lower Patina Wall in Sept 2019.

A nice selection of cracks. About 7 routes from 5.6 to 5.12a, most 5.6 to 5.9

NOTE: Lose Blocks - As of 9/28/19 There are some very loose toaster oven/microwave sized loose stones to the left of the Troll/Gargoyle anchors. Take care not to dislodge them with your feet while belaying or rapping as It wouldn't take much to knock them loose on those at the cliff base.

Getting There

Take the climber's path across the street from the AT parking.[ Just a bit to the right of "walking directly across the road", and well south(east)  of the "AT" trail .]  You'll walk through flat, open forest with cairns. After about 5 min (or less) the path will steepen, go over some larger rocks/small boulders and make a turn to the right. [slightly relocated from earlier days].   Here, move slightly left and up past a 3 trunked silver birch, to get to Little Crack Land. Lost River Crags is accessed by following the path beyond Little Crack Land.

For all other Lost River Crags, continue on the main path to the right.

I THINK I got the GPS on the correct rock outcroping!
