Description

Razor Crack is perhaps New Hampshire's most beginner-friendly aid climb. It climbs an undulating thin crack through corners, a roof, and a face above. The number of fixed pins and easy placements make this a great line on which to learn the rudimentaries of aiding.

On the right end of the giant roofs, locate a thin crack with some pins in it. The first pitch, and a short one at that, climbs up to some fixed webbing right before the crack splits a roof. Many stop here and lower down. If you choose, continue out the roof and up the face above.

Evidently, someone has freed this to the first anchors. It had been one of the last great problems of the area. Does anyone have more info? Jun 16, 2007

Jay--

You should ask Peter Kamitses about this. I know he freed something over there this past summer. Mar 8, 2008

I recall hearing that Justin Hayes was working on freeing this awhile ago - don't know how it went though. Mar 8, 2008

wow , i freed some of this with Karl Mallmen years ago but nowhere near the roof- maybe the first 20' or so. Also i think Jimmie's efforts at the Toothless Grin extension were never completed.

Rob Frost completed the Toothless Grin extension at 5.13b a number of years ago. Mar 28, 2009
The 4 pin anchor at the top of the first pitch is atrocious. Be careful. Oct 24, 2016

Great place to bring the cam hooks. Didn't place anything larger than BD 0.4. There are ~5 pitons and lots placements for tiny cams (C3 00 - X4 0.2) and small nuts. Anchor was kinda sketch (but held a bounce test); we left a nut to back it up. Jul 1, 2018
