Rappelling Down Waterfalls in Crawford Notch

WCSH 207 Local

Many of us have spent time in the White Mountains sitting by a waterfall and enjoying the view. But for some thrill-seeking visitors to Ripley Falls in Crawford Notch State Park, simply sitting idly by and watching the water go by isn’t enough.

They wanna walk down those waterfalls. And Northeast Mountaineering is helping.

Watch Now Doublehead Cabin, NH

For our last babe hike, the Alpine Women Collective teamed up with Northeast Mountaineering for two day hikes and an overnight at Doublehead Cabin in Jackson, New Hampshire! NEM is a guiding service based in the White Mountains. We had a beautiful winter day, warm temps and a snowstorm that night which left behind beautiful powdery trails to walk (and ski!) down the next morning. Big thanks to Seattle Cider and Two Beers Brewing for providing delicious drinks for us at the top!

It’s been a while since I’ve been up to the White Mountains on account of baby number 2 coming into the picture in September. Between work obligations and our expanding family it’s been difficult to find “me time”.

I had a little vacation time left in my “use it or lose it” bucket so I decided to blow off work and go for it.

I wasn’t totally sure what to expect for the day. I’m not a super experienced ice climber. The extent of my climbing has been pitches on some local ice, and indoor gym climbing. I was stoked to get on a multi pitch climb this early in the season!
