One of New Hampshire's lesser notches Dickey Notch is located along the west side of Dickey Mountain and east side of Cone Mountain and associated domes. Although lacking the impressive cliffs of some of the more well known notches in the area this is an interesting place for climbing. Somewhere along the valley floor here the bedrock changes from the coarse white granite to the east to a fine gray schist to the west.

There are several boulder fields in the area and sometimes through a little glacial integration the rock types will even be mixed. Most of the full length climbing is located in a couple of areas on Cone Mountain within the WMNF.

Getting There 

Park at the Welch Dickey lot and head out the Brown Ash Swamp trail.

With one foot and one hand in each crack climb past the ledge where the corners start crossing a pillar and ending up at the ledge above the Stone frogs corner. Instead of moving up look left climb a juggy wall to a stance again stepping left to the final crack on Ride the Turt...[more]   Browse More Classics in New Hampshire
