I have climbed all the routes here and have a good idea of what they all are but if i have messed anything up let me know and ill fix it...

Seven routes from 5.7 to 5.11a, pretty dirty right now but will get better with some traffic. A great place to escape the crowds (till the new guide comes out)... Really the cliff is just below the Kennel Wall and to the right of New Wave but there is no easy way to get here from there... I did see a fixed rope from up there but it looked a bit of a tough way to get there...

The best route here in my mind is what i think is Kegals and Locks 5.7 which is at the main area separate from the main cliff on the right, but the others are all worth doing...

So if you are looking for a new experience take an adventure and see if you can tap in to the pleasure that is... The G-Spot...

Getting There 

From the small parking lot follow a faint trail on the right (when facing the lot from the road)... This faint trail winds up a very steep slope for 5 minutes till you can see the first small route alone on an obvious little cliff... From here you can skirt the cliff to the right and up a little more to another lonely route... The Largest part of the G-Spot is accessed from here by climbing up and left on a ledge and following fixed ropes to a steep slope where you can see the rest of the climbs...

Lichen Lickin 5.10d 6b+ 21 VII+ 21 E3 5b  New Hampshire : *Rumney : The G-Spot
This is the line on the far left... Packs way more of a punch than it looks... The top climbing wouldnt be too bad if it wasn't covered in Lichen is... I pulled some of it out of the important holds but there is more to be done... Bring a brush...Climb up the slight invert which ever way you see fit... I stayed right of the bolts but it could go straight up... Some interesting footwork and big reaches get you past a 2nd bolt crux and on to fun moves leading to the upper crux which is re...[more]   Browse More Classics in New Hampshire

So I climbed all these routes the other day and thought they should be on the sight... I looked up names and grades on but there was very little description so i tried to match what the routes felt like with grades and the little description i could find... If you know more and i got anything wrong let me know and i will fix it right away... The descriptions will be right though as well as the directions and rough grades which is the most important part i think... enjoy...

Finally check this out yesterday, it is different from the rest of Rumney because you can get a true onsight on many of the climbs because there isn't chalk blazing a path for you. I have done half the routes here and so far Kagals and Locks (5.7) is the best. This is a good place to escape the crowds on a busy weekend but don't expect to find line that you will be itching to get back on... Overall though a fun hidden little area.

I went out there yesterday, and from the guidebook description I think you have Lichen Lickin' and drillin' in my dreams switched on your photo (the guidebook says lichen lickin' is the leftmost route). I felt Drillin' was the hardest route out there for me though.
