Glen Boulder, visible to travelers on Route 16, is a glacial erratic curiously perched on the Presidental Ridge in Pinkham Notch. There are also a few problems located in the Boulders in the parking lot, I recall one hard project too probably V9ish or so.

Getting There 

This steep climb leaves Route 16 from the Glen Ellis Falls Parking area. The trail rises above treeline at a relatively low elevation, passing two trail junctions, crossing brooks, and traversing open rocks on it's way to Glen Boulder. The views along the way are tremendous.
