Comments: Is this the wall where The Question Mark and Bitch Be Cool are located?

Comments: I got rained off and only experienced the first pitch, but I have to say this is a really special line for the White Mountains. Greenpeace has the sort of sustained, go-for-broke style more commonly found on the other side of the country, while still somehow keeping with the technical, footwork-intensive climbing of White Mountain granite. I'll add the caveat that I am not the most experienced climber, but this is absolutely my favorite crack climb in the Northeast. I hope to return to finis... more >>

Comments: Sustained and cryptic climbing in an outstanding position. I can't think of too many pure arete climbs in the Whites, so that's a plus, too.

Comments: I spoke with the Forest Service, but since the cliff is on private land, they didn't have much information other than the fact that peregrines are indeed nesting there this year, and that the sign was posted by the landowner.

Comments: At 5'8", clipping one of the chains from the huge jugs before the mantle wasn't all that difficult. I suppose if you're shorter, having the anchor extended to allow for a lower clip (as it is currently) might give you some peace of mind but falling there without it probably wouldn't be consequential. Though I've yet to test that.

Comments: Voluntary peregrine nesting closure through 1 August this year. There is a sign posted on the approach trail to the base of the cliff.

Comments: I found it to be more squirmy than expected, even with my relatively small frame. Definitely worth your time to hoof it up to the crow's nest for this one. Easy, yet exciting!

Maybe I have a good imagination or I was running out of oxygen back in the depths of the chimney, but I felt like I had been transported to Banff or the Ruth Gorge. Your experience may vary

Comments: This is an excellent route! In fact, I thought it was on par with its much more popular neighbor to the right (especially true if it cleans up a little more). Harder moves, but better rests make it a great compliment to the more sustained Romper Room.

Comments: Yup, I'm not sure how it typically forms but it was definitely not R when I did it. Really fun pitch, one of my favorites from this season.

Comments: There is a piton to the left of the ice, about 20-25' up.

Comments: At 5' 8", matching my foot on the start hold wasn't too problematic. I could definitely see that move being really tough for taller folks though. What a fantastic set of moves.
