Rock Climbing Whitehorse and Cathedral Ledge

This past Sunday was my first day out on the rock this season with Northeast Mountaineering guests Megan and Britney. Both had a fair amount of gym climbing experience and some outdoor single pitch experience and were stoked to try some multi-pitch climbing. After some indoor skills practice focused on cleaning single pitch sport leads we headed to Whitehorse Ledge and climbed Standard Direct to Lunch Ledge. We then rappelled and headed over to Cathedral Ledge for a quick afternoon run up Upper Refuse. Perfect weather and not too busy crags made for an excellent first day of the season! Get after it before black fly season arrives!

  1. Hey!! Where could one find access to the routes? To know the grades! I’m headed up to Whitehorse in about four days!


    • The best guidebook is Rock Climbs in the White Mountains available at the local climbing shop “International Mountain Equipment” in North Conway. You can also find info on but the guidebook is the best!
