About Fall Mountain:

Fall Mountain is, above all, a bouldering area. In fact, in the opinions of those who have climbed there, it has the best bouldering in the state! Fall Mountain, in Walpole, NH, is a very new area, and has only been climbed at for about 4 years. Nonetheless, over 170 problems have been done already, from easy V0 to hard V4. Nearly all of the development has been done by a couple of dedicated locals (the author of this page included). There are also several great roped climbs, including one sport climb, bolted last Winter (1998). The rock at FM is clean, solid, rough & featured schist, which has been favorably compared to the rock at Rumney. Most of the problems tend to be overhanging and/or powerful, usually both. Cracks, slabs and overhangs all exist, and there is nearly infinite potential for climbing at any grade.

Nearest town or city: Walpole
Directions: To reach Fall Mountain, you must first get to Walpole (it is on all the maps). From Walpole, head North right along the river, and eventually you will pass a Jiffy Mart on your right. Continue past this, and you will come to a huge turnoff / boat landing on the left, you can park here. From here, hike back South along the road until you reach the end of the train tracks, then hike up into the woods to find the climbing. It is VERY important that you do not walk for any long distances on the tracks, and even MORE important that you walk all the way to the end of the tracks rather than just climbing the fence. Stuff like this could get FM closed to climbing, and nobody wants that!
