Crag picture
Early spring morning on Cathedral Ledge.
Description: 600' granite cliff located less than 2 miles from downtown North Conway. This crag provides incredible trad rock climbing as well as excellent ice climbing in a very scenic location.
Directions: From the north side of North Conway, turn onto River Road at a traffic light and head toward the obvious cliff. Turn left at a sign that says Cathedral Ledge and Echo Lake State Park. Go straight ahead past a small chalet subdivision to the cliff. You can park anywhere along the road. In the winter the road may be impassible as it is not plowed. There is no camping or fires allowed in this area and please pick up your trash.

There are also several small crags in the general area included in this collection, several of which offer stellar climbing.
