When you imagine sport climbing on the east coast of the US, places like The Red, The New, or The Obed in mind, as the northeast isn’t exactly known for its bolted areas. However, Rumney breaks the mold. Situated in the center of New Hampshire, Rumney offers a unique experience for the sport climber

Challenging formations to be had

With routes from 5.3-5.15, it’s certainly possible to find what you’re looking for. It may come as a surprise to find yourself climbing features like aretes, cracks and corners, all of which may test your free climbing tactics. If you are used to crimp after crimp on an open face, you may be challenged by the nature of the formations here.

Rumney climbing comes with a very supportive climbers coalition and culture, and so the cliffs are very well taken care of. While you can expect older hardware in some less traveled cliffs, the state of the bolting is very good and offers well-protected climbing. The sheer quantity of routes available means that finding a cliff with fewer people isn’t often an issue.

In Memory: AMGA Certified Rock Guide and 57hours Ambassador

On September 1, 2022, we learned of the passing of Cody Bradford, a friend, an inspiration, an educator and community member. During his time as a guide, he made an indelible impact on the industry and those around him, with an unceasing smile and positivity and the way he welcomed others into the outdoors through teaching (#TechTipTuesday), humor and compassion. We first met Cody five years ago and it was his love for people, enthusiasm for guiding, and determination to become a fully certified mountain guide that impressed us and motivated us to build this company. Cody began his guiding career with the North Carolina Outward Bound School in 2012 and rapidly tackled challenge after challenge to gain his AMGA Rock Guide Certification in April 2018. We were lucky to have worked with Cody and he will forever be a part of the soul of 57hours. He will be deeply missed and remembered by the 57hours team.

In memory of Cody Bradford
