Whitney-Gilman Ridge (5.7) 5 pitches, 600 feet Trad, Alpine, Grade II
Cannon Cliff Franconia Notch, NH

Whitney Gilman Revenge! This was our mantra for the most popular alpine rock climb in New England! Last May we attempted WGR but had to bail after 2 pitches due to getting a late start. Today it was busy, we were the 5th group (out of 7) in line, but we completed the route! I’m not gonna give a pitch description since you can already find that info online and in guidebooks. So I’m just gonna post our photos….yes, we’re happy and smiling in all our photos. We have good reason to! :)
