Cannon Mountain, Franconia, New Hampshire, USA
Cannon Mountain formerly known as Profile Mountain is a 4,080-foot peak in the White Mountains of New Hampshire. It is known for both its technical rock and ice climbing on its cliff face and skiing at Cannon Mountain Ski Area. Until the formation collapsed on May 3, 2003, it was also home to the Old Man of the Mountain.
Cannon has three sub-peaks with heights of 3,693, 3,700, and 3,769 feet collectively known as “The Cannon Balls.” Geologically, it is an exfoliating granite dome. Part of the Kinsman Range, the mountain is located within Franconia Notch State Park.
