mo- you should check out Stairs.. the lower cliff will be buggy, but the next two up are usually windy. Right off the trail   a pretty sweet 2 pitch 11+ tons ore to do

Funny you say that strand. I almost went this morning for a recon hike in the rain. Talked with Slacker about possibly going this weekend.

Do you know Brady Libby, John? I think he lives around your way, in Gilmonton. He would be a good source of beta for the Stairs and Back Stairs. My understanding from him is it is ok to bolt, but you aren't supposed to use a power drill. He ran into a ranger out there and that is what she said. Bikes would be out too once you get to the boundary
"Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is not a path and leave a trail."

Do any of the new anchor rules apply ??? I THINK you can bike in a ways and this helps.. certainly a large amount of rock.


Also one of my top 3 NH swimming holes ,,, not the one at road end, that's OK, but 200 yds south... outstanding
