Comments: "ACCESS NOTE: I was just at the parking lot boulders. The hueco and wave boulders are farther up the coast past where some jackass has spray painted "PRIVATE" on the rocks. I would have gone up there to check them out but a wedding was going on and I didn't want to be a dick by getting in the background of all their photos."

Comments: Your welcome for the info. on the route.

Well the grade could be on par... Seeing that an old school 5.9+ could be just as hard as 5.10b. If I understood correctly from another forum site that hit upon the subject of ratings a while back...

Comments: Lee, after looking at the old '95 guide to Pawtuckaway the route you posted looks & sounds like Bloody Fingers 5.9+ PG

Comments: Maybe my memory is going and maybe it's not but for some strange reason it seems that the really bad foot used to make the cross into the upper crack, of this problem, has grown and got bigger...

Anyone else notice this... I just don't recall the foot being this massive edge...

Comments: Jeremy this route sounds and looks like Fleas 5.8+ out of the old 1995's Comprehensive Guide to Pawtuckaway Rock Climbing by the Saball's & Paul Boissonneault... food for thought


Location: NH : Cathedral Ledge : Lower Left Wall / Ventilato... : Bombardment (5.8)

Comments: Thanks...

It is a little Random and from what I've heard from another climbing friend of mine it's meant to be a more fitting start to Ventilator... I made the first bolt and the first moves up to the second bolt with ease after that I had to aid the route up to the crack below the oak tree...

Something I'll try again on a cooler day then the day I tried it...

Comments: Does anyone know the grade and name of the three bolt slab climb that can be find going up to the 2nd pitch of Bombardment & Pleasant St?
I know to the right is the normal 5.6 start to each of those climbs just wondering what the other is...


Location: NH : Concord Quarries DWS

Comments: Did a little research online about the Concord Quarries and it seems that some of the Mountain Bikers use to park in the cemetery and ride in on one of the trails from there, if this is possible still I have no clue.

Also, I think it should be noted that in my research I found that the state police/prison guards have a shooting range that lies in between the two quarries. The range can be found in an old quarry that cuts into the hill side. If you look at Google map or Virtual Earth you'll see ... more >>
