Description

Short Mountain lies directly south of Ragged Mountain on the southern side of Carey St/Reservoir Road. This small 'mountain' hosts a few cliffs, the most popular of which is the Winter Wall. The Winter Wall hosts some high quality traprock cliffs and was once off limits to climbers. The land has changed owners recently and the previous owner who used to shoot at climbers is no longer around. The cliff and cliff top, per recent survey, has been confirmed to be private and climbers should have the utmost respect for the property when they climb here.

Getting There

The best approach to short mountain is to park at the Timberlin Park lot and follow Marjorie Moore Road to the dead end. From here one can access the Short Mountain area and its array of cliffs.

So i recently did an A-2 survey for an easement near this cliff, and the property boundaries on the Town GIS are incorrect. The Town of Berlin understands this inaccuracy. The cliff is still technically on Private Property. However, the owner of the property (who used to shoot at the climbers back in the day) no longer owns the land, thankfully. Please tread lightly as this cliff IS private property. Dec 21, 2017

Thnx for the info - the above map was compiled using DEEP data. Can you advise on the gps coordinates where the property line intersects the cliff from your survey? Dec 21, 2017

Also any chance you could update the Lidar scan by hand with where you believe the lines should run? Dec 21, 2017
Is this all trad lines? (Sometimes Mountain Project isn't up to date...) May 22, 2018
