Conquering the Crags
Rumney Rocks is a playground of different crags, each with its own vibe:
Main Cliff: The big one. Known for its steep, challenging routes like “Flying Hawaiian” (5.11b) and “Predator” (5.13b).
The Meadows: Perfect for those getting into the game, with moderate routes and awesome views. Try “Asylum” (5.9) or step up to “Hippos on Parade” (5.10a).

Taking in the Scenery
Rumney Rocks isn’t just about climbing – the scenery is a knockout. Nestled by the White Mountains, you’ll have a lush forest and rugged cliffs to set the scene. The Baker River adds an extra touch of serenity as you take on the cliffs. Pause for a moment to soak in the sweeping mountain views.
