Mark R. on Bigfoot


This route climbs the obvious yellow arete. Cleaned and mostly prepped by Mark Sprague. Great climbing with a mix of gear and bolts. Very techy arete climbing with the most scenic resting jug in the Whites. From this jug looking to the north you can see Mt Washington and to the south Mt Chocorua. Awesome climbing


Land of the Cracks? I think that is Mark's name for the area?


6 bolts, 3 finger size pieces, and a .5 for the top.

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.
