Deer Leap - Rock Climbing

Kellie set this up on her NH Rock Climbing Meetup group , and it was a perfect climb for a warm November day! Deer Leap is a town forest in Windham, NH. The name is derived from the natural rock outcropping (cliffs) that rise 60 feet above the Moeckel's Pond. We met in the parking lot off of Woodbury Road and hiked in on the Deer Leap trail. The Deer Leap trail is one large loop and it's great for hiking and snowshoeing. At the Deer Leap-Porcupine Ledge trail junction we took the Deer Leap trail and it took us directly to the top of the Deer Leap cliffs. The Porcupine Ledge trail leads off the main trail and loops over uplands, past a large boulder, and then down through rock ledges, where it got its name. It also leads to the Deer Leap cliffs but not before passing Porcupine and Mike's cliffs. We were the only group rock climbing at Deer Leap! Kellie set up two ropes and our group spent the rest of the afternoon climbing, enjoying the warm November sun! **Thanks
