As far as Rumney goes, most of what you enjoy came from private citizens and NOT the government. That includes most of the original parking lot and the trails.

really??? looks like most of the newer stuff came via the FS.

great work JoeC. thanks for your efforts.
Looking for a partner for Friday and Saturday.  Cannon or North Conway would be my preferred locations, willing to look at other options. 

I'll be at Rumney on Thursday. 

I've got a VG9 if anyone is looking to get on Vertigo ...


This fun route starts 50' left of Sandinista and 25' right from Ol' Dirt Dog. Starts on a clean white streak in front of a standing dead tree, friction up to 2 horizontal cracks. Move right to the end of the cracks and up to a right leaning crack, at the end of where the crack stops going right proceed straight up to the large tree ledge.
(tricky gear placement to protect the move up to the large ledge, can be done with a red tri-cam and a stacked nut in a solution pocket)
Straight back on the large tree ledge and proceed up the clean rock to a 2 bolt anchor.

Standard single trad rack including tri-cams  up to a #2(gold) Camalot

FA: George Hurley, Jim Nupp & David Giampietro August 2016

Alternate Approach: This is a very easy and enjoyable approach different from the book and that listed on Mountain Project. Use the North Shore Rd (Merrymeeting Rd) for Merrymeeting lake. Travel 1.1 miles from the intersection of Powder Mill and North Shore Rd (Merrymeeting Rd) to a very small pull out on the left where you can park. Follow the trail (well groomed perhaps old logging road) through the boulders follow trail until you can turn right onto a well marked trail with cairns. Walk approx. 25 minutes total (Almost to the top of Mt Molly) turn right and up off the trail with a short 100 yard bush whack to the base of the cliff (Central Wall Area).
