The Great Cut - circa 1920 Don't be climbing (or...


This is the railroad cut through the top of Crawford Notch. There are many boulder problems and several climbs here.

[ NOTE: The RR through the notch is active again with a tourist train in summer through "leaf peeping" season. Folk should only climb here during the part of the year when the tracks are not active - late fall through late spring, and even then should be aware they are technically trespassing. (per sign on the tracks) RHall NH Admin.]

Getting There 

Park at the top of Crawford Notch and walk a short distance down the railroad tracks into the cut.
