I like that idea, an FSP rock climbing community.  My 13 yr old climbs with a team here in Maine and it is a hobby I'll bet he will continue to do when we are in NH.  We would like to at least come to watch if you get a group together and we are there on that day.  Thanks for posting!

Google Rumney rock climbing.   It's "nearby" to porcfest and is the disneyland of sport climbing.  Days of easy going fun plus swimming.

Cool, OK so maybe one person. Anyone else? We could also split the cost of a guide if folks are less experienced. I have done this before in nh.

I know there are tons of places to rent gear in places like North Conway. Anyone know of a good EMS/REI or other store to rent climbing gear near Lancaster?

I've been meaning to do this forever but, at least at PF 2008 it seemed quite small (only two people could go at the same time) and geared toward children. Plus, it was in a rather public place - not exactly the best place to try it for the first time for me anyway. Maybe it's improved/expanded more now.

@All - talked to the Roger's Campground folks and they said the closest mountain climbing gear stores are in North Conway. For example

@Adrienne - not sure what you mean? The mountain only allowed 2 people at a time? I am talking about going to a nearby mountain, perhaps Rumney, to go climbing. I realize it does get crowded but I don't think there would be a limit of 2. Are you talking about an artificial climbing wall?

When Porcfest was at Gunstock there was a small portable climbing wall.
