Pinnacle Buttress 5.7, III

N.E. Ridge of the Pinnacle Buttress III,5.7 takes the rock ridge of the famous Pinnacle Gully ice climb on Mt. Washington in Huntington’s Ravine. It’s a full day adventure into a beautiful alpine environment. With a 2 hour hike in, 7 pitches of climbing, and the unpredictable weather of Mt. Washington for some added spice it will be a day to remember.

Lost in the Sun III,5.5 located on Mt. Willard in Crawford Notch is this 7 pitch climb with bolted belays and moderate slab climbing. This is a great route for beginner’s with some multi-pitch experience to climb.

Cannon Cliff Franconia Notch, N.H.: Climb the Whitney-Gilman Ridge II,5.7 5 pitches.  The Whitney-Gilman Ridge is New England’s classic must do ridge climb.

Warning: Rock climbing is inherently dangerous. All those who participate in rock climbing with Mountain Skills Climbing Guides do so at their own risk.
