A really nice route and one of the longest in the area. The first nine pitches are typical 5.6 slab climbing with interesting features here and there for good variety. It's mostly on nice rock and well worth doing for 5.6 leaders. The last pitch (requires some steeper bushwacking to get to) is the money pitch! It goes up the left side of headwall all the way to the very top. The climbing here is Cannon-like with some loose rock, so be careful. It's also rather sustained, so the leader sh...[more]   Browse More Classics in New Hampshire

I have been working on figuring out established lines on this section. It is starting to come together. Anyone with info please add and help organize a confusing MT. Webster area.

Any one have any photo's of Candyland 5.7 as seen in Jon Sykes The Notches Guide (pg.'s 48-50) Especially the headwall and final alcove ! The Descent seems adventurous, really wondering if the top of the mountain is reachable and a hike down is an option ! 1,300 ft. sounds like a blast !

Thanks ahead of time

I just posted what I have:3 photos. Not much detail because of foreshortening. Best angle would be from somewhere high on the Willey-side of the notch, but many trees there. (Photos are from the RR tracks at the level of the base of Willey's Slide; it really needs to be 1000 ft higher. )

The yellow dash is where Sykes shows Candyland to exit the top of the Bore Tide slab.

I'll see if he can draw the route into the more "telephoto" of the photos.
