8. The Berlin Wall

New Hampshire > Great N Woods R… > Mt Forist

Description

Great climbs on high quality rock. IMHO the most interesting climbing on Mt Forist. 

Getting There

This wall is the right most piece of rock near top of the main face and is barely visible above the trees (see Bob Hall's Mt. Forist overview pic). It is located to the right of North End Upper Slabs. The bush wack approach is what we used the most. It starts near where the Lower Right Slab ends. Walk up the right side of the slab about 30-40 feet then head off right at roughly a 45 degree angle following the path of least resistance for about 200 yards. This traverse keeps you out of an upper scree slope. Now head more straight up but still rightward. This approach will likely bring you to the right end of the cliff. Surveyors have recently set a boundry pipe and their tape might lead you toward the wall. Approach time from where you leave the lower slabs is about 15 minutes.
You can also approach TBW by climbing a route on The Lower Slabs and then traversing climbers right to the top right of the slabs. Once in the woods continue traversing right and up another 10 minutes. A loose scree slope may be encountered.
