57hours is committed to providing safe outdoor adventure experiences. We require all guides using our platform to have a COVID-19 safety plan and to make the details of that plan accessible to travelers. In most cases, group sizes will be reduced, guides will avoid overcrowded locations, and other safety measures will be met depending on the location and activity.
We also expect clients to respect local regulations and take measures to protect themselves, guides and the communities they’re travelling to. For more information on COVID-19 measures in Rumney, please refer to the Official New Hampshire State website.

The closest airport is in Lebanon, NH (LEB), but as it’s New England, most everything is seemingly a stone’s throw away. Portland, ME is 97 miles away and the closest major airport, Portland International Jetport. From NYC, Rumney is about a five hour drive, and about two hours away from Boston.
The exact climbing spot will be discussed after the booking as guides make that decision after considering the skill level of the group and factors such as crag traffic and weather.
