Vertigo 5.9 5c 17 VI 17 HVS 5a A0 R  NH : *Cannon Cliff : 4. Moby Grape Area
Vertigo is a classic (mostly) free route that offers sustained and varied climbing. A lead of the fearsome Half Moon Crack is a feather in a trad climber's cap.Locate the undeniable splitter of Reppy's Crack and head to the right past a death gully. The next section of solid rock to the right holds Union Jack and Vertigo. Vertigo starts in the center of the low angled pane of granite at a wide crack.Pitch 1, 5.6: Head up the wide crack to easier climbing. Belay on a comfortable ledge.Pitch 2, 5....[more]   Browse More Classics in NH

While the trail at the big boulder will get you to the cliff and Moby Gape area, a much better approach trail is just 25 yards past the boulder. Look for a bike turn-off area on the right; the trail starts at about the center of the turnoff.
