Brian climbing Bugland Arete
Alright, so it's not as buggy as it sounds, but in bug season, it's just as bad as the rest of the park. This is a small area located midway down the Fire Road with a limited number of climbs, but a couple of them are worth checking out, namely the Bugland arete. People climbed on the boulder nearest the fire road years ago but the boulders are largely ignored at this point. Drop in on your way up or down the hill, crank off a few problems, and at least get to say you tried something new.
5 minutes from the bottom, 10 minutes from the top. When coming down the hill, before crossing a stream, there is an obvious mid-sized boulder on the left with a fallen tree sitting on it. This boulder holds 3 problems. The rest of the boulders are across the trail, about 100 yards back next to a small pond.

A one-move wonder, but a good one at that. Sit start just right of the tree with the obvious undercling feature. Pull off the ground with difficulty, toss for the lip, and with any luck you'll stick the jug rather than the sloper. As with a lot of these climbs, it would be much better if it led to more climbing. ...[more] Browse More Classics in NH
