Description 

These scattered boulders lie on either side of the trail between the junction and the Pinnacle Boulder. The Crack Boulder, the first you'll encounter is home to the beautiful and aptly named Crack of Pain and the classic, powerful Stainless Steel. The Karma Boulder is visible across a short marsh on the left side of the trail past the Crack Boulder and only has one established climb. To the left of the Karma Boulder and at the end of the small marsh is the Sorority Boulder with a fine collection of problems.


Getting There 

From the junction, head straight and skip the turn to the Swirley Boulder. The trail bends left and you'll run into the Crack Boulder. The trail heads right and up a small hill. In a few seconds you'll see the Karma Boulder over the small marsh. The Sorority Boulder is about 100' left of Karma.

Art sticking the seam.

Stainless Steel V8 7B  NH : Pawtuckaway : ... : Crack Boulder Area
A solid, powerful problem with technical feet that would be classic if it didn't fly under the radar. Sit start the left side of the slightly bulging face at a jug in the crack with your ass on the low boulder behind you. Follow a seam to the right for a couple of moves, then using a right hand sidepull and a left hand crimp/sloper, dyno to a better hold up and right (crux). Match the hold, then top out straight up....[more]   Browse More Classics in NH
