Whitney Gilman Ridge 2015 – Multi Pitch Rock Climb

Whitney Gilman Ridge - check! 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, and it was like golf...just keep up with the group in front of you! 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 - Whitney G, check! :) Go up this way from the paved bike path Up through the talus field with the prominent ridge of Whitney Gilman in sight! Long scramble up the talus field to the mountain base means you get a good warmup before your climb. :) Below,
