Location: NH : Lakes Region : Sandwich Notch : Sandwich Notch Bouldering : Halfway : Roadside Boulder

Comments: There is a hard line (v8-v9? I haven't really tried it too much) to be done between 'The Mystic' and 'Sunday Funday'. Starts on a half pad undercling and makes hard tension moves on tiny holds to jugs at the lip.

Comments: Jake, thats how I have always done it, I make a big move out to the clam shell then work across the slopers. Foot work seems to be key for me!

Comments: I left a carabiner at the top of this climb so that the anchor is redundant for lowering/rappelling.

Comments: The moves on this boulder are quite good, with bullet hard rock. The awkwardness of the boulder at the start does take away from it a bit, but if you can get past that you will enjoy this climb a lot.

Comments: Hi Jake, sorry about the confusion, I updated the description to better describe the route. It sounds like you were starting one move in!

Comments: I don't think the route potential on this boulder warrants any more cleaning. As it is there seems to be several small trees that were cut to make this mediocre problem possible. I think there has to be a balance in what we cut and clean based on likely hood of people climbing it in the future.

Comments: To me it looks like you are actually at Main Cliff Proper/Center and you are on the 5.8+ called Gold Digger? Was there a insecure step right at the top?

Comments: This is an interesting boulder problem and a tough one to grade. For me it felt v2ish but I am tall, it will feel grades hard for short people. Hence the v3 rating, I am trying to remain height neutral.

If you adventure out here, few will, please climb it and chime in on the grade.

Comments: I am not sure where you started this Eli, I started on a good crimp with the right and a crystal with the left, then moved up into the jugs. Is that where you started? Photo coming soon.

Comments: I climbed a short extension to this problem today, it starts more left on the nose of the boulder, then moves right, into the start holds of the original line.

Comments: This feels more like soft v1 if you start with the obvious starting holds. Using a large left know for your left and your right on the arete with a good side-pull, starting with the real small crimps under the roof makes it harder but very contrived.

Comments: The good feet and good beta will make this seem easier than v4. In my opinion it is v2-v3.

Comments: This line does not look very appealing, however, it climbs surprisingly well. Cant wait to do the full link link, starting on Mayonnaise.

Comments: Thanks guys, I live up north but my dad lives in Goffstown, so i am always looking for a close spot to his house. Jake if I head it out there I would be stoked for a tour.

Comments: Climbed this line again today, it is really hard to come to Blackjack and not take a lap on this classic! One of the best boulder problems anywhere.
