Cannon Mountain, NH,
New Hampshire, White Mountains,
Climbers typically head to Cannon, White's Ledge, Echo Crag and other locations in Franconia Notch. Climbers must be comfortable on 5.8 routes or better and have demonstrated proficiency in multi-pitch climbing. Cannon has long, strenuous approaches (45 min -hour to base of cliff), is very committing, can have extreme weather changes and tends to be a longer day of multi-pitch climbing. Cannon really isn't for the faint of heart. Nearby crags are somewhat less aggressive. Inexpensive lodging (Fri. and Sat. nights) is available for participants who desire it or you're welcome to find your own lodging. All meals on your own except for our traditional Saturday night cost shared (approx.$10.00) gathering or eat out at a local restaurant. The following gear is required for all trips: helmet, harness, shoes (climbing and for the approach/descent), belay/rappel device, personal anchor system, cleaning (nut) tool, two prusiks, three locking carabiners, headlamp, and a rope. If you are a new second and don't have all the gear (e.g. rope) contact the trip leaders. Trip size may be limited due to available trad leader participation and leader:second ratios. Your level of participation as a lead climber or second is subject to the determination by the trip leader of your possession of the requisite skills and experience. All trad leaders must be on the AMC Narragansett Chapter Approved Trad Leader List to attend an event. Trad leaders wishing to be added to the list should see the AMC's Essential Eligibility Criteria For Rock Climbing https://drive.google.com/open?id=17c9ejfXQLgeR9uYmNwLgqY2jdsnGPwCp and should contact the trip leader or a committee co-chairperson. All participants (including seconds) must meet these eligibility requirements. The trip is held rain or shine unless cancelled by the trip leader. Participants must be a minimum of 18-years old or accompanied by a parent/guardian if between the ages of 15-17 years old. Registration will open one month prior to the scheduled trip date. Earlier registration will not be permitted. Trip participation is based upon the number of available trad leaders and ability of the trip leader to match them with a second.
Directions and carpool information will be sent to participants.
