Rock Routes at Attitash Crag: grouped by Area, sorted by Name
Description: Attitash Crag is a nice little cliff, situated off Rt 302 on the north side of the Saco River in Bartlett. It is almost directly across from the Bear Peak ski area at Attitash. Parking is in the lot as for Thorne Pond which is just past the Bartlett Cemetery. It has a great collection of routes at a wide variety of grades. Many are bolted, but you will need to bring trad gear as well. It is not a toprope area, and there is no easy way to setup ropes without leading something.
Directions: To get to the crag walk through the gate and down the trail towards the river, the pond will be on your left. Cross the meadow and follow the obvious trail to the river. Go upstream until your are directly opposite the cliff. Wade across the river, finding the shallowest path. At one time there was a log across the deeper section, however Hurricane Irene washed that away. There is a faint trail on the cliffside bank that goes uphill past the toe of the cliff on your right. It comes out on the left side of the cliff band. The first two routes on the left of the cliff are Seasonal View (5.9) and Duked Of Hazard (5.9).
