Drove through a while ago.
Infrastructure funds are tight.

Great old pic! I wish I could see one of this spot before the train corridor was blasted... Definitely one of my favorite places in NH!

Not for nothing but....with all the climbing available in Crawford Notch, "elephant gully" is really just a little shitbag of an ice climb.

Not many 100 foot almost pure ice climbs that have such a short approach... I find this a fun early season route before it gets filled in with snow and a great end-of-day got 30 minutes to spare quickie...
