The unique appeal of backcountry climbing in the White Mountains has continued to be a draw for some climbers. In particular, the remote crags of the Upper Kancamagus area have seen a big surge of activity and the addition of many new routes.
Add it all up, and you have about 2000 rock climbs of all grades and styles, probably representing one of the most diverse collections of routes to be found in any single area in the country.
This guidebook includes detailed descriptions of almost all the routes in the area. This is not a compilation of descriptions from other sources, rather, the information included in this book relies, as much as possible, on firsthand experience, with descriptions having been completely rewritten and rechecked. As well as the written descriptions, this guidebook makes extensive use of photo diagrams, custom-drawn maps, and GPS data to ease the process of finding the cliff, finding the climb, and finding the route. My goal has been to make this the most usable, accurate, and detailed guidebook to the Eastern White Mountains to date.
