Long/Lat: -71.840019, 43.804606

Unique Features And Strengths:

Excellent sport climbing on good schist and quartzite.

Description:

Rumney climbing area is a collection of crags on the slopes of Rattlesnake Mountain, near the village of Rumney, New Hampshire. This is on national forest service land, and a daily parking fee is charged -- which goes to the maintenance of the Rumney climbing area.

The current (as of 2013) definitive and most popular guide book for the area is Rumney by Ward Smith.

Approach:

For most popular cliffs, access is easy and obvious along well-marked trails.

1.1.1. The Parking Lot Wall 21 routes in Cliff

Summary:
Mostly Sport
Description:

The closest wall to the parking lot, making it a favourite -- it has a variety of easier routes.

Approach:

Take the right-hand trail behind the notice board. Short approach, but stay on the trail as there are rare plants in the area.

Descent Notes:

Lower-off.

1.1.2. Meadows 42 routes in Cliff

Summary:
Mostly Sport
Description:

Another cliff near the parking lot -- really this and the "The Parking Lot Wall" are part of the same band of cliff without a clear divide between the two.

Sub-sections are listed left-to-right, but if approached from the parking lot, the approach will arrive at the Holderness corner section. (The trail from the overflow parking near the swimming hole arrives near the left-end of the No Money Down section.)

Approach:

Take the left-side trail from behind the notice board, less than 5 minutes up to the wall.

Descent Notes:

Lower-off.

1.1.4. The 5.8 Crag 18 routes in Cliff

Summary:
Sport and Trad
Description:

A smaller (by number of routes) still fairly low down on the cliff, so easy to approach.

Approach:

From the overflow parking lot, hike along the path parallel to the road until the sign for the 5.8 crag, where the path narrows and veers upwards towards the crag.

Descent Notes:

Most climbs have top anchors, either rap rings or permanent carabiners.

Summary:
Mostly Sport
Description:

The main cliff at Rumney is the large clearly visible from across the river, cliff at Rumney.

It is a large, complex cliff with several different sections, including in the main area, a bunch of climbs that start from an elevated ledge. And, unlike much of the rest of Rumney, many of the climbs are on an orange quartzite that gives much different climbing from the schist elsewhere.

Approach:

Follow the well marked trail from the 2nd parking lot.

Descent Notes:

Generally rappel or lower off anchors.
