Registration is closed

Join us for an extended weekend in the White Mountains of New Hampshire climbing, hiking, and exploring this beautiful region.

Long-time Club members Andy Weinmann and Lindsay Rohrbaugh are opening their place (Das Kletterhaus) in Campton, New Hampshire for a Club outing.

WHEN: Members can stay anytime during 9-14 SEP period. We chose these dates to avoid the very busy Labor Day weekend.

WHAT: An extended weekend in the White Mountains, based in the Franconia Notch region. Climbing options abound in this area for all ability levels.

Camping at Das Kletterhaus will be in the area out in front of the house. Folks will have access to the house to use the kitchen and bathroom and to generally hang out and gather; there is also an outhouse around the back that can be used at any time and should be used for "after-hours" business.

Be respectful and clean up after yourselves. Please bring your own food, utensils, towels, and toiletries. There is no fee required, but Andy and Lindsay do appreciate any contributions - either cash or some of your time helping out around the place...inquire with them.

Please fill out the carpool/camping signup spreadsheet.

Climbing and other activities: The two well-known areas are Rumney (sport climbing on schist ~15-20 min away) and long trad climbs on Cannon Mtn (~30 min). Other quality crags close by include:

  • Echo Crag - "Carderock approach" to granite cracks
  • The Eaglet - free standing spire across from Cannon
  • Kinsman Notch - variety of trad, sport, and mixed climbing on granite
  • Welch-Dickey - mostly granite slab
  • Bryant Ledge - near the road, easy/mod trad on granite
  • The famous Cathedral Ledge, near North Conway, is about 1-1/2 hrs drive over the Kancamagus Highway. 
  • There are too many other crags around the region to list.

In addition to roped climbing, there is a large amount of bouldering in the region at places like Waterville Valley and Kinsman Notch.
