The peak on the west side of rt302 in Crawford Notch across from the imposing west face of Mt. Webster and just south of the beautiful South face of Mt. Willard. It is most notable for the large slide low on it's slopes. This is Willey's Slide and is one of the best and most ascended easy multi pitch climbs in the Northeast.

Getting There 

Follow rt 302 north or south into Crawford Notch. Keep an eye out on the west side of the road for largest slide. Parking is below this on both sides of the road and is usually busy.

What is the standard descent for Willey's Slide? are there rings and slings on trees off to the side? Or a walk off?
