The Body Electric V4 6B  New Hampshire : WM: Lincoln Area : Indian Leap Falls
This climb took me two tries and is a great way to fool around on the rock during a hot summer in New Hampshire. The crux comes close to the top about 20' off the water. The topout is solid and pretty secure although the time I fell was in the top lieback crack/arete. I've been told the water is too deep to ever touch bottom but always be aware of your fall zone and scope it out before trying it....[more]   Browse More Classics in New Hampshire

Does anyone have any information on the bald rock you see on google earth just north of loon mountain? I was standing on top of loon recently and thought there might be some route potential.

That picture is of Mt. Huntington, further east than what Ryan is refering to.

I ran in right at the end of the day to check it (Huntington) out, but have never climbed there. What I saw looked very chossy and vegetated, but I had very little time to explore, so may have missed the best rock. I have heard of people enjoying it, so it is probably worth going and having a close look yourself. It is not very far from the road, but bring your bushwhacking skills. There is a shorter section of rock up and right that I have always wanted to go check out. It is probably rotten and nasty, but it looks like a cave.

You might find some topaz up there

Edit - Mount Huntington is now placed in the WM: Kancamagus (Central) region

You might be talking about Lincoln Crag (which was accidentally located under WM: Kancamagus (Eastern).

Mark is right about Travis' photo. It does have a listing (I've heard folks having fun on Southern Migration and Perennial) but it could be argued that Mount Huntington belongs under WM: Lincoln Area. Hopefully this comment/link will help guide people to the right listing so the area maps remain accurate. :)

No wonder I couldn't find anything. I was looking in the "wrong" area.

Well, Huntington was placed correctly if you took my area map as gospel. I believe it's geographically closer to Greens Cliff than to Lincoln but I agree that most folks will probably logically associate it with Lincoln.

WM: Kancamagus (Central) is kind of a catch-all for a lot of the "outback" mountains in that area. Not that Huntington is far from the road (hell, it's in your face every time you ride the Kanc) but it's alpine nature makes me feel like it fits in with Bond Cliff, The Captain, and Greens. I think the Lincoln area would feel more fleshed out when MountainProject users submit their take on a lot of the areas Sykes/Cunningham have written about in Secrets of the Notch.
