Trad, 8 Pitches, 1150 feet
North Conway, NH
My last multi-pitch rock climb before I leave for Colorado! Sean, Tom and I were going to climb Whitney Gilman today but decided that Cormier-Magness may have less of a line. At the base we were behind a group of 3 that included a first time leader and a first time multi-pitch climber. When their 3rd started the second pitch, Sean lead up to the pine tree.
At the base, you can practice chipping.
P2, "The Wheat Thin Arete", is a blast!
Pitch 3, "The Cajun Washboard"
Pitch 4 "The Open Book"

The giant, steep flake of "The Northwest Passage" (P5) is my absolute favorite!!
Here's Tom making his way up - it looks harder than it really is.

Along the route I snacked on sweet Blueberries!
