Cathedral Ledge

I spent a few hours yesterday climbing Funhouse to Upper Refuse on Cathedral Ledge in North Conway, NH, pictured above. Was a great climb with an even better view, and after 5 pitches, 600 vertical feet and a nice applause from the group of people at the top, I was interviewed for a documentary being made about Dean Potter. Obviously not what was I expecting to do after my first climb in a few months. We hiked back down to the car, stopped for a couple of beers at The Moat, drove to a roadside waterfall off the Kancamagus and then hiked up to Bridal Veil Falls with Mr. Jason McKenzie of The Tannery’s Wilderness Workshop. A great day in New Hampshire, to say the least.

Happy summer, y’all.

    Great picture and post. I actually spent all of my summers when I was younger at Lake Winnipesaukee. We hiked different mountains every Thursday and had quite a few week long trips in the white mountains. This does look somewhat familiar, almost like it is near where the Man on the Mountain was. We passed it one day hiking a mountain called Cannonball. Definitely one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever been (the white mountain area). Thanks for brining back some memories. Great post!
