Comments: After some research it looks like this problem is commonly referred to as "Things in the Woods". Maybe we should adopt that name, it looks as if Paul Robinson and Jon Cardwell have ticketed it on 8a.nu and 27 Crags as this name.

Comments: I was on Newenglandbouldering.com and they had compiled a list of hard boulder problems in the northeast. In that list is a V11 called "Tire Swing" in Rumney, does anybody have any info about this route? I have never heard of it... I can't climb this hard but am very curious because it is a complete mystery.

A couple other routes in question at rumney

Sam See Hold - v6 - FA Sam Enright (?) (This supposedly climbs out of a hole)
Spun - v9
Thing in the Woods - v9 (This one might climb a bit weir... more >>

Comments: This is a really fun and unique climb, the top out needs a bit of a scrubbing, if I remember to bring a wire brush with me I will give this climb, the two climbs to the left and Page Master a quick scrubbing.

Comments: This is a very good boulder problem, surprised it does not see more assents and receive higher accolades. I highly recommend this climb.

Comments: Pretty cool route, it actually climbs fairly well. The only thing that really detracts from it, is its close proximity to the tree.

Comments: There is a very fragile heavily chalked crimp just before the jug at the top. The crimp is not necessary but will not hold weight so just be careful of it.

Comments: I wouldn't argue that Christian, I climbed through the slopers several times just to punt from the top. Figured the beta out for it but never sent. Have to go back and send it next weekend. :)

Comments: Do not underestimate the topout, I flashed up until the mantel today... then punted trying to top out. A left heel hooks helps prevent this.

Comments: I did a sit start to this today starting down and right. Left hand is the starting foot rail for the stand and right foot is a small crimp out right. Pull up and move right hand into the right hand starting crimp of the stand and work your left hand up small crimps to get into the stand proper. Felt maybe v5-.

Comments: This problem should be a NH classic, if not a New England classic. Beautiful movement capped by a stopper mantle move that has tossed many strong climbers. A visually striking line that flows perfectly and should be climbed by all.

Comments: This is a pretty rad short boulder problem, if it lead to more climbing it would get more stars. A very worthy short line.

Comments: Bryce, I like the idea of listing the heel-toe cam as the natural line, maybe name it General Lee Left or something along those lines. Then leave Jeremy's up with a better description, a historical explanation, and saying that it is an eliminate and point out the specific feet that are supposed to be used to make it v9.

Comments: I agree with Lanky, I have always thought that you should post the most natural version of the climb and mention any eliminates or variations in the description.

Comments: The heel-toe came makes it v4, I can see with your feet directly below you how it could feel v9 though. Anybody think an Admin or OP should update the grade?

Comments: I gave this a V7 after much thought. My reasoning is that I have tried this on the normal NH days and the crux has felt HARD to impossible. When I sent it, it was about 25 degrees with a wind chill in the low single digits and humidity around 10%, so it felt easier (felt like v6) because of the excellent friction, but this was a freaky dry day for NH. I think v7 is a more accurate grade for most conditions that NH throws at us.

Comments: I Finally sent this rig today! This route has taken me several years of trying to actually send. By far the longest I have worked on any particular boulder problem. It is an awesome route would be 4 stars if it didn't have to cut right into Firestarter.

Comments: The sit start to this "Sally Sat Down" is a really good climb. Probably around v4, with two ways to do it, a dyno to the jug start of Sally or it can be done technically, I recommend the dyno :)
