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.

Home to at least nine routes, 5.6 to 5.9, with one 5.10c/d, this short little cliff (50-80 ft) should start to see more use once the guide is published.

Getting There

Not sure the GPS is exactly correct.

Take the climber's path across the street from the AT parking. You'll walk through flat, open forest. After about 5 min (or less) there will be a rock step, and shortly thereafter the trail will split at a "junction". Go straight ahead, uphill 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.

Scramble up past the bases of the Little Crack Land climbs, continue up and right 50 ft (pass the top of Bull Pen) and then turn left and uphill then back right 60 ft to the base of Lost River Crag.

For all other Lost River Crags, turn right down at the "junction".
