43 S Main St, Sandisfield, MA 01255,
On Saturday, October 9th, come climb with us at America's newest crag, Hanging Mountain! Located approximately 125 miles in Sandisfield, MA, it'll be a great alternative to Rumney. There are approximately 70 sport and trad routes open to climbing, ranging from .8 to .13. Additional details about Hanging Mountain is listed in the link below. The New York-Northern New Jersey chapter played a significant part in the development of Hanging Mountain with not only manpower in the construction of the crag but also a substantial grant to help offset its costs. This is not an intro to climbing trip, all participants must have outdoor climbing experience, a firm understanding of sport and/or trad anchors, all personal climbing gear. AMC will provide quickdraws, ropes, and helmets as needed. Your trip leaders will screen all registrants prior to confirming their attendance. We plan to depart the city in the early AM and return in the evening. For those who need a ride to Hanging Mountain, trip leaders are offering rides and sharing the costs. Details will be discussed during our screening calls. Note, Hanging Mountain will open to the public on Saturday, October 2nd. Please do not climb prior and jeopardize our access.
