Description

This area was subject of a forest fire in the autumn of 2017. You may encounter charred trees and BEWARE OF NYLON RAP ANCHORS ON TREES and BOLTS. The prudent will replace!.

Three major cliffs and a few smaller outcrops, with a variety of climbs. The approach involves crossing the Lost River, so these cliffs may be best climbed in the "dry season".

The three major cliffs are: Lower Primate Wall, Upper Primate Wall and the Monkey Cliff itself.

Getting There

Driving west on Rt 112 you pass enter the White Mountain National Forest at a large sign on the right. 0.45 miles beyond this, on the right (north) is a green electric box (# 6488) on an embankment.

Park completely off the road opposite this, or in any of the nearby gravel or paved pull-offs.

Enter the woods at the electric box. The path soon reaches an old railroad bed (cairn) then heads down left, then back right through a swampy area and on to the river. Cross the river.

Continue to, and cross, a smaller brook; then look for a logging road up to the right. This leads to a boulder field and Lower Primate Wall.
