This neat little wall is filled with horizontal cracks that make for some interesting climbing on a couple of short routes here. Sure it's a little obscure but the backcountry usually is. This wall remains in the shade through much of the day and is a good place to cool off, hang out, or whatever.

Getting There 

This wall is the furthest north (uphill) along Dickey Ledge.

The best way to approach is from above. There are two ways to reach the top, hiking down from the trail a few hundred yards after passing the main slabs, or from along the top of the east slab.

There is a fixed rap anchor on a tree.

Climbs the left hand side of the wall using horizontals, protection is good if not so straight forward. A low crux leads to enjoyable climbing....[more]   Browse More Classics in New Hampshire
