About Carter Ledge:

Large SW facing slab accross the Chocorua Brook drainage from the Mt Chocorua Summit. Reached via the Piper Trail trailhead on NH Rte 16. Longest known direct route is 4 pitches. No fixed pro is found on the crag. Low angle runouts are the rule. Overlaps present potentially higher grades on the main face. The northern end presents much steeper slabs and the potential for sustained climbs above the moderate standard..
