The Dome, Pawtuckaway - Rock Climbing

Dome Face Right (5.8) Another stellar day for climbing! This morning Noreen, Nuno and I headed out to The Dome at Pawtuckaway State Park. At first the weather didn't look promising, but forecasts called for afternoon sun. The morning fog did eventually burn off and blue skies warmed up the slab quickly. It was peaceful and we had this crag all to ourselves.  Nuno setting up top rope Nuno start, Another Face (5.7) Noreen on the Pine Tree Crack (5.5) This crag is perfect for a hammock!

The Lower Slabs - Rock Climbing

The Lower Slabs Pawtuckaway State Park Nottingham, NH Abbie, Kierstie and I met for a mellow day of top rope climbing at the Lower Slabs. The gate to the Round Pond Road is now open so the approach from the parking area to the Lower Slabs, Lakeside Crag, Upper Cliffs etc is about 5 minutes. We were all set to expect humid conditions with lots of bugs. But surprisingly, the temps were very comfortable and it was hardly buggy due to the mild breezes. We had the crag all to ourselves! Enjoy some photos taken of our day!
