Description 

can't find the words right now...pretty amazing though. and about the size of a yacht. Jay and I found this while exploring...Thanks to Jay for sharing such a cool spot!

Getting There 

continue along the obvious trail, all the way up until your face to face with a 50 foot rock face with a large roof pointing to an off width. This is The Upper Cliff, Gandalf's Cave is inside this.

OW/squeeze chimney with a short stemming traverse at the top. With some OW technique this will go down easily then you'll finish 45/50 feet above the crevasse, straddle either side and pull around right for the top out....[more]   Browse More Classics in New Hampshire
