« on: September 21, 2017, 10:29:06 AM »
Does anyone know what the hardest mixed climb in New England is?  And more specifically New Hampshire?

I assume it is John Henry at the Mica Mine but was wondering if anyone knew of anything harder.

...not sure the actual grade but thought the Matt Ritter route at Kinsman Notch was in the high M grades! I saw him give it a send attempt! Impressive!

Not NH, but Check out Snake Mtn in VT, not sure if they're the hardest routes but they must be close.

drawing a blank all of a sudden, but who was the guy from Vermont who owned an insurance agency, did a lot of routes at Willoughby, Wheeler and Dacs? very very good ice climber & mixed climber & friends with Joe Terravecchia? I seem to remember that he climbed a lot of very hard mixed routes.
