Hot and steamy has been the weather theme during the past week or so in NH.  Janet and Bill arrived from San Antonio Texas to sample two of New Hampshires finest rock climbing areas РWhitehorse and Cathedral Ledge. MMG guide Erik decided on Whitehorse for the intro to the area. The afternoon session proved to be a good idea as the sun set over the cliff giving some relief from the heat.

Footwork and body position is key to movement on the slabs.


View to Echo Lake and the town of North Conway.


On our second day I decide on the Upper Refuse route at Cathedral. Here is Janet using a finger crack to climb while Bill coaches the upcoming moves.

Thanks to Janet and Bill for coming to NH to climb. They both enjoyed amazing weekend rock climbing adventure. Erik and I were excited to be their guides and show them our home climbing areas.
