Not really a mountain at all but that's what people call it. Hardly a prime destination but one spectacular climb awaits. Easy approach yet secluded. It can get buggy but good swimming is at the car park.

Getting There 

Heading north towards Bartlett/ Attitash, take a right at the "Town Center", directly across from bear Notch Road. Cross the river and park at the trail head. 15 minutes up to the Cave.

What a disgusting little cliff (and I mean that as a term of endearment). Spent many a grovelly day up there with JT in the 80's. If the internet had been around then I'm sure we would have just stayed home watching reruns of The Gilmore Girls. Bring tape, and probably a rototiller....
