Artist Bluff & Echo Crag - Rock Climbing



Standard Route (5.5) & Right Side Route (5.6) - Artist Bluff
Maiming of the Shrew (5.5) & Skeletal Ribs (5.6) - Echo Crag

A little bit of everything today while in Franconia Notch! Fantastic rock climbing Artist Bluff and Echo Crag today with Eric! At Artist Bluff I second Eric on the the Standard Route (5.5). Then I lead P2 of the Right Side Route (5.6) - taking the right side - it sure was dirty, but oh so fun! I didn't get very many photos as I left my iPhone in the backpack. Regret not pocketing my iPhone - the views of Echo Lake and the notch from P2 of the Right Side Route were amazing! Many families with children and dogs were enjoying the views from atop Artist Bluff as well. Afterwards we headed over to Echo Crag for some cragging - climbing Maiming of the Shrew (5.5) and Skeletal Ribs (5.6). Super fun day! Enjoy a few photos taken of our day.
