Memorial Day Weekend at Acadia National Park

We are back at Acadia for Memorial Day weekend 2019! There's lots of great top-rope climbing at the spectacular sea cliffs (Otter Cliffs and Great Head) and trad climbing at the Precipice and South Bubble. There is also plenty of other things to do like hiking, going to the beach, walking and biking on the carriage roads, lobster, and much more!

The cost for the weekend is $26. This includes the cost of the campsite, firewood and food for a cookout on Saturday evening. Participants should help out with the cookout if they can.  In addition you need to make your own arrangements for climbing, hiking and other activities. 

We will organized a day of climb at Otter cliff for Climbers who have taken the Boston AMC rock program class course  (or equivalent).  You are responsible for arranging your own climbing partners and bringing all of your own equipment to set up top rope (trad gear is required to set up some top rope routes).  

If you are not yet part of the AMC Boston Climbers community we would love to get to know you but realize that most people are not comfortable jumping on a rope with someone they just met so come with a partner, one of you must be able to lead, and you must bring all of your own equipment (harness, helmet, shoes, rope, and draws plus camping gear if staying overnight).

Some more information can be found here in the overview document. Please fill out the form below to register and get the payment PayPal link. Contact trip organizer, Sue Lin, at acadia@amcbostonclimbers.com with any questions.

Please note that everyone will be required to sign the AMC liability waiver.

Registration closes at 12pm on Thursday May 23rd.

Weekend at Rumney Rocks
Jun
1
to Jun 3

Weekend at Rumney Rocks

Join us for a climbing weekend at Rumney Rocks! Rumney is the premier sport climbing venue in New England and there are other trad climbing and hiking opportunities nearby in the White Mountains.

Chris C has a cabin nearby in Thornton, NH and has offered to let people use his place as a venue to camp out Friday and Saturday nights and for a cookout Saturday evening. Most people will head up Friday after work and climb both Saturday and Sunday but heading straight up Saturday or Sunday morning and meeting at Rumney is also an option.

Please note that everyone will be required to sign the AMC liability waiver.

Camping Location:

Chris’ cabin is off I-93, exit 28, about 4 miles from the highway. We will give the complete address and directions to everyone who signs up.

There’s a bunk room with 4 beds and plenty of floor space but it may get too crowded inside depending on how many people sign up so plan on bringing a tent to camp outside and consider yourself lucky if you get to stay inside. There is a grill, fire pit, and plenty of firewood available for burning.

Amenities

The cabin has electricity, heat, indoor plumbing, a fridge, showers, a sauna, and all the other stuff you would expect in a normal house; except a microwave for some strange reason.

Food

We will have a cookout on Saturday evening, all other meals are on your own.

There is a breakfast/coffee place by the highway on-ramp in Campton (Mad River Coffee Roasters), and various supermarkets (Hannaford, Walmart) and delis (Chase St Market, Biedermans) in Plymouth (on the way to Rumney).

Saturday Cookout

The cookout on Saturday evening will start around 6:00pm (Happy Hour!) with food ready to eat around 6:30-7:00pm. BYOB.

We will do it Crow Hill potluck style where everyone brings something to grill/eat/drink.

A-H: Dessert or beverage

I-P: Munchies or salad

Q-Z: Something to grill (plus rolls/buns to accompany)

Getting to Rumney (the climbs, not the cabin)

The parking areas are on Buffalo Road, west of Rumney Village.

To get there:

  • Take I-93 to exit 26, this will put you on Route 25/Tenney Mountain Highway heading west.
  • Follow Route 25 for about 8 miles until you see a blinking yellow light over the road (this is your warning that the turn is coming soon).
  • Proceed a little further past that first blinking yellow light and you’ll see signs for various Rumney related things (church, animal hospital, historic district) with arrows pointing to the right.
  • Turn right at the 2nd blinking yellow light onto Main Street.
  • About 3/4 of a mile up you’ll come to a 4 way intersection at Rumney Village, take a left onto Buffalo Road.
  • About a mile down the road on the right you’ll see the “Rumney Rocks Climbing Area” sign. This is the place.

Parking

There are 2 parking lots at Rumney Rocks, both of which have rudimentary bathroom facilities. The one at the Rumney Rocks sign is the larger of the 2 but requires a longer walk to all of the climbs except the Parking Lot Wall and the Meadows. Most of the parking lots in the White Mountain National Forest (including the Rumney Rocks lot) charge $5. Bring a pen to fill out the payment slip and cash, payment is via an unattended strongbox so you can’t get change.

If you have a WMNF annual pass or one of the nationwide “Interagency” annual passes you can put it on your dash in lieu of paying for parking. All the REI stores in the Boston area should sell both the WMNF ($20) and Interagency ($80) annual passes. The Interagency pass is worth it if you plan on doing a bunch of climbing trips to National Forests and National Parks over the next year (e.g. the AMC trip to Acadia where the park entrance fee is $25). This pass does not work for any state parks, just federal.

Both parking lots can fill up on weekends so plan on an early start. If both parking lots are full DO NOT PARK ON THE ROAD. This will result in angry locals, tickets, and/or towing. There’s a campground owned by the American Alpine Club across the street from the 1st (larger) lot that charges $5 to park, WMNF and Interagency passes do not work at the AAC campground.

Climbing

There are many hundreds of routes at Rumney ranging from 5.0 to 5.15a (good luck with that one, tough guy).

We won’t be matching up leaders with seconds. However, we see this trip as an opportunity to continue the mentoring of the new seconds in our community, and so we would encourage leaders on this trip to take a new second out climbing with them at least one day of the weekend. The trip spreadsheet (more on that below) will have a column where leaders can indicate which day(s) they’d be willing to take a new second with them. New seconds, it is your responsibility to be proactive about contacting available leaders.

The local ethic is for the first climber up a route to attach their own personal gear to the anchors and lower or toprope on their gear. The last climber on a route can move the rope to the fixed anchor, clean personal gear off the anchor, and then lower off of the fixed anchor. Do not top rope on the fixed anchor or lower off of it repeatedly and unnecessarily.

Certain areas at Rumney will be closed for endangered ferns and nesting falcons. These closures will be posted on the bulletin board in the parking lot.

The most current guidebook is the 2017 edition of Rumney, by Ward Smith, available here: http://www.rumneyclimbing.com for $35.00.

Gear

You should have all your personal climbing gear: shoes, harness, helmet, chalk bag (optional), belay device and locking carabiner. Additionally a couple of extra "shoulder" length (24") slings and 2 locking carabiners would be useful if you want to second any climbs and need to anchor in to clean an anchor.

There are a few trad routes at Rumney but it is mostly sport so bring your ropes, quickdraws, and clip sticks if you’ve got them.

If you don’t bring bug spray, you’re gonna have a bad time.

Shameless Plugs

Rumney needs your help! Rumney Rocks is only available for climbing due to the efforts of the Rumney Climbers Association with help from the American Alpine Club and the AMC. Besides maintaining the anchors on the cliffs, the RCA raised the funds to purchase the cliffs themselves from private landowners, build parking lots and trails, and transfer it all to the National Forest. This work continues with the recent purchase of the “Final Frontier” area which will be added to the National Forest once the new parking lots and trails are built. If you enjoy climbing at Rumney please consider helping support the RCA in their efforts: http://www.climbrumney.com

New Hampshire’s Search and Rescue teams also need your help! SAR efforts in NH have historically been funded from fees on the sale of boat, snowmobile, and ATV registrations as well as hunting and fishing licenses but lost and injured hikers and climbers, who don’t pay any of these fees, account for 60% of the SAR missions in the state. As a result the NH Search and Rescue Fund has been operating at a deficit for years and the state now seeks reimbursement for rescue efforts from hikers and climbers if it is determined that the subject acted negligently. You can buy a $25 Hike Safe card, good for the rest of the year, that eliminates the liability for SAR reimbursement and the proceeds from the sale of the cards go into the Search and Rescue Fund so we can continue helping lost and injured hikers and climbers. http://www.wildlife.state.nh.us/safe/

White Mountains Trip

White Mountains Trip

Join AMC Boston Climbers for a trip to the best climbing the western Whites have to offer. Greg Spurr will be leading this trip and Chris Camejo has generously offered camping at his cabin just 30 minutes from Rumney, NH. Note that leaders are welcome to join for the weekend and climb elsewhere with or without new seconds. Partners and carpooling should be arranged on your own but we will facilitate via a spreadsheet and toprope groups as necessary. If you will not be joining for camping, plan to meet in the first Rumney parking lot on the right at 8:30 AM. Information on area activities, camping, eating, climbing, etc. are provided by Chris below.

All are welcome to attend but please register by filling out the registration form.

BBQ/Camping Location:

After climbing we will be having a BBQ at Chris’ cabin in Thornton, NH. Directions will be sent to those who register.

Climbers are also welcome to pitch a tent and camp out at the cabin Friday and/or Saturday night to shorten the drive to the crag in the morning or stretch it out into a full weekend of climbing.

Thornton is about 2 hours from downtown Boston without traffic, straight up I-93.

Climbing Areas

Rumney is about 30 minutes southwest and is one of very few sport climbing (i.e. bolted) areas in New England.

Kinsman Notch is about 35 minutes northwest and is one of the newest climbing areas to be developed.

Cannon Cliff and other Franconia Notch cliffs are about 35 minutes north. Cannon has some epic big wall (by Northeast standards) climbing.

There are also various crags along the Kancamagus Highway, Crawford Notch, and in the North Conway area. Lincoln and the western end of the Kanc is about 30 minutes to the north, the AMC Highland Center in Crawford Notch is about 1 hour northeast, and North Conway (Cathedral and Whitehorse Ledges are classic crags in that area) is about 1.5 hours via either the Kanc or Crawford Notch.

If you’re looking for an alpine excursion, AMC Pinkham Notch Camp on the east side of Mt Washington (where most of the rock climbs are) is about 1.5 hours northeast via Gorham.

The guidebook to Rumney has been out of print for years and goes for stupid money on eBay so Mountain Project is your best bet for beta at that location: https://www.mountainproject.com/v/rumney/105867829

Kinsman, Franconia, and Crawford Notch are all covered in a newly released guidebook called “The Notches” by Jon Sykes, available online here: https://www.eaglecliffpub.com/purchase/

Climbs in the North Conway area including the eastern end of the Kanc and Mt Washington are covered in (surprise) “North Conway Rock Climbs” by Jerry Handren, available here: http://www.northconwayrockclimbs.com/purchase-north-conway-guide.html

Red Tape

This is the season for peregrine falcon nesting so please check to see if the cliffs you’re planning to climb have any closures.

If you go to Rumney, the Rumney Climbers Association requests that you do not run topropes through the fixed anchors. Attach your own slings/biners to the fixed anchors so you toprope on your own gear of instead (this approach save lots of wear and tear on the fixed anchors given how popular Rumney is). It is OK for the last person to climb a route to be lowered directly off the anchors (i.e. you don’t have to switch to rappel mode).

Most of the parking lots in the White Mountain National Forest (including the Rumney Rocks lot) charge a few bucks to park (I think it’s still $3 but they were talking about raising it to $5). Payment is via an unattended strongbox so you can’t get change; bring a pen to fill in the envelope and a bunch of $1s to stuff it with. If you have a WMNF annual pass or one of the nationwide “Interagency” annual passes you can put it on your dash in lieu of paying for parking in WMNF. All the REI stores in the Boston area should sell both the WMNF ($20) and Interagency ($80) annual passes. The Interagency pass is worth it if you plan on doing a bunch of climbing trips to National Forests and National Parks over the next year (e.g. the AMC Acadia trip, the park entrance fee is $25).

Note that Franconia Notch and Crawford Notch are NH state parks, not park of WMNF. This is a double edged sword: most of the lots in the state parks are free, but when they are not free you won’t be covered by your WMNF or interagency pass.

Given the costs of rescuing people who get in over their heads outdoors and New Hampshire’s aversion to anything remotely resembling a tax, the state passed a law that makes negligent hikers liable for the cost of their rescue. If you’re going to be spending much time outdoors in NH you may want to consider buying a “HikeSafe” card which exempts you from that liability (unless you’re completely reckless). Cost is $25 for a year and all funds go to the Search and Rescue Fund. Available online here: https://www.nhfishandgame.com/HikeSafe.aspx

Pets:

Besides the bears, I know there are coyotes in the area (I had 2 separate sightings today). If you bring a pet you should plan on keeping it in the tent with you at night so it doesn’t run off and join the pack (which, in reality, will kill a domestic dog given the opportunity).

Last I checked, WMNF (i.e. Rumney Rocks) has a “pets must be in control” policy. This doesn’t necessarily mean a leash is required, as long as your critter actually listens when you tell it to do something.

Swimming:

There’s a swimming hole down in the river so bring your water wings if you want to cool down after a hot and sweaty day of getting pumped on the cliffs. It’s a WMNF pullout (free parking) called “The Eddy” on Route 49, just west of the intersection with Burbank Hill Road.

Hiking:

There are plenty of hiking trails in case you want to take a day off from climbing: The trailhead for the Welch-Dickey Loop is just a few minutes down my road (there are also some slab climbs up there), and the trailheads for Tecumseh, the Osceolas and the Tripyramids (all 4,000 footers) are all in Waterville Valley, about 20 minutes away.

Phone Service

If you have Verizon you will likely get only 1 bar of 3G coverage at the cabin. Other carriers don’t seem to have any coverage at all. I’ll leave a note on the fridge with the WiFi details.

Stores

Plymouth, NH is a college town about 15 minutes south and has a Walmart amongst many other services. You’ll pass through it on the way to Rumney.

If you’re looking for somewhere to buy guide books or climbing/outdoor gear then your best bet is Lahout’s Summit Shop in Lincoln (30 minutes north) but even that will seem sparse if you’re used to the variety available at the average REI. There are many Lahouts stores in Lincoln, each with a different specialty, so make sure you head to the right one: it’s at 165 Main St, in the same plaza as the Subway.

Misc

Gas stations are few and far between up here, especially once you get past Lincoln heading either to Cannon or over the Kanc. Plan ahead and fuel up early.

Fireworks and/or gunshots (i.e. target shooting) are normal up here, especially on Saturdays. Welcome to New Hampshire.

We are back at Acadia for Memorial Day weekend 2016! There's lots of great toprope climbing at the spectacular sea cliffs (Otter Cliffs and Great Head) and trad climbing at the Precipice and South Bubble. There is also plenty of hiking, ocean, and lobster!

We have two group sites at the (conveniently located) Blackwoods Campground for Friday, Saturday, and Sunday nights.

Cost for this trip is $26 per person for the weekend. In addition to camping, this will cover food for a cookout at the campsite on Saturday evening. Please note that Acadia National Park has a per-vehicle entrance fee of $25, valid for 1 week.

You are primarily responsible for your own climbing arrangements but we'll try to facilitate leaders and new rock program grad pairings to the extent we can. Generally a bunch of people will go toproping at Otter Cliffs each day. You will also need your own gear for climbing. (Usually enough people have ropes for toproping.)

To reserve a spot, email Catherine Wearing at acadia@amcbostonclimbers.com and let her know whether you are a trad leader. After Catherine has confirmed availability of a spot, she will let you know how to make a payment for the trip fee.  (A payment is required to hold a spot.)

Basic Summer Rendezvous Info

What is Summer Rendezvous?
Summer Rendezvous is a weekend climbing trip for AMC climbers to get out with other members of our community. We do not have a formal matching process like at New Seconds weekend so we encourage climbers to make plans ahead of time. However, we’ll help facilitate groups or pairing if needed so that no climber is left behind. Non-climbers are welcome to join and non-AMC members/affiliates are also welcome.

Where are we climbing?
This year’s Summer Rendezvous will be held in the Adirondacks from July 24-26. This beautiful area in upstate New York boasts some of the finest trad routes in the East as well as great hiking, biking, and swimming. We will be staying closest to Chapel Pond Pass which has the highest concentration of routes in the area. Climbing grades in the Adirondacks tend to be stiff but you’ll find routes from 5.3 upward and from 1-8 pitches in length.

How do I sign up?
Register below or send an email to summerrendezvous@amcbostonclimbers.com. The cost for camping and Saturday dinner is $25 per person for the weekend and must be paid upfront to reserve your spot. We will send you a link for payment after you have sent your RSVP. Space is limited and first-come, first-served so sign up early! The cost is non-refundable in the case of rain, but there are many great activities to enjoy in the Adirondacks if wet rock is not in your climbing repertoire.

Questions?
