To many an alpinist, New Hampshire’s Cannon Cliff is known and highly regarded as the northeasts premier alpine rock climbing and winter ice/mixed climbing arena. Cannons packs a punch whether you be climbing on the Whitney Gilman Ridge, or the classic Black Dike ice climb, I am pretty certain you will find yourself feeling wild and exposed while climbing up the wall.
The team Han, Mike, and Ashlee with Art Mooney. Determined we headed into the alpine zone for a four hour blustery and exciting climb of the Whitny Gilman Ridge on Cannon Cliff.
Han knows the meaning of Alpine very well. Alpine climbing is the activity he seeks out on his travels and adventures.
