General Information

Climbing areas covered on separate pages can be accessed by the links above and to the right. Since we don't have a separate page for Crawford Notch or the Kangamangus Highway yet, we have included that information here.

Crawford Notch is about a half hour north of North Conway. It is usually cooler in the notch than North Conway. This area has some small rock climbing on Elephant's Head and a lot of nice ice climbing routes on Frankenstein and Willard. The classic Willey's slide is in the area as well as Shoestring Gully.
