Comments: I gave this route 3 stars, in it current condition it might be more like 2.5 stars. However, with a clean top it will get the full 3 stars, really good climbing.

Comments: I echo the sentiments of everyone else, this problem is an area classic! Cool thoughtful and core engaging climbing leads up to a pure power move to the lip, one of the most satisfying climbs I have done! As Mike said, CLIMB THIS!!!

Comments: What an impressive line, seeing it in person is even more impressive, might be one of the purest and most proud lines in New England!

Comments: Looks like the tops of these boulder problems have been partially cleaned, a big thank you to whoever took the time to clean it up and for picking up my slack since I never went back and finished cleaning them! Thank You!!

Comments: Seasonal Peregrine closures in effect for Summit Cliff, Flea Surgeon, Northwest Passage (edit - the route not the area with the same name) and the Asylum. MAIN CLIFF IS OPEN

Comments: Out of curiosity I hiked up here this morning and it looks like the reported rock fall was somebody trundling some rock to the left of B-b-buttress setting up a new route following a large flake and up a crack through the headwall above.

Comments: I have climbed this route a couple times and never had a #4 with me, use care and protect in the obvious stances and you will be good to go

Comments: I do not think using the starting hand on the right arete makes this a v2 or v3, that is quite a sandbag. This rig feels harder than Fabulous and Bodysnap stand which are both solid v4's. This problem is stout, it is only two hard moves but catching that small crimp is not a v3 move. I would say this is still v5 maybe a soft v5, but no way is it v2 or v3.

Comments: It should be mentioned that the big flake at the top out to the right is loose. This is a giant hold on a microwave sized piece of loose rock, care should be taken when topping out this classic and make sure the people at the base are alert as well. This is one of the best v0's anywhere.

Comments: I agree with Tim, there is no way this thing is v1 as someone suggested, this is stout in the v3 range.

Comments: The starting flake has broken off making the start very awkward and powerful...

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.
