The Lower Cliff sits down and left from The Hive. Despite the fact that it's about 20-25 feet tall and over 100 feet long, it might be difficult to find until you're right on it.

The Lower Cliff has some potential for cool problems. There's a steep face/boulder on the left, a less steep wall in the middle, and the Smear Tactics boulder on the right. There are also a few boulders right below the cliff that might have potential.

Then grab a nothing crimp with your left hand, and jump up to a sloping ledge. Hold the considerable outward swing and match the ledge. The crux is getting your feet established on the wall and reaching for a crimp just below the lip. The dyno is def...[more]   Browse More Classics in NH
