I can't seem to find any info on any climbing on Imp Face in the mount washington valley. It looks like it could be good (from far away) but I have a hard time believing nobody's climbed it before.

what's the deal? is it a choss pile or so far less than vertical it's not worth the trouble?

Is it in the Secrets of the Notch?
The guidebook by John Sykes.

not sure as I have not been able to get my hands on a copy recently. i could ask my buddy to look at his when i get a chance

i didnt think to look there since it seems to cover the western half of the whites and not the stuff in MWV as far as I'm aware

You can ask John Sykes yourself on Facebook, he's probably very happy to answer questions about the area, even if it's not in the Secrets of the notch or his upcoming guidebook.

It is not in Secrets of the Notch, nor has it been included in any of the North Conway or other White Mountain guidebooks, though I am sure that it has been climbed. I have certainly been tempted to head up there over the years, but laziness always won out. I'll bet that Mike Hartrich has climbed up there, others, too, I'm sure.

Sykes has climbed out there years ago. Another friend of mine from the valley have also climbed out there more recently. They both report very poor rock quality!!! A very long hike to some alpine choss...
