The best way to describe this section is a bunch of small crags spread out on the very right side of Humphreys. Fun moderate single pitch climbing, very close to North Conway.

Getting There 

Mud Slide Crack wall. Drive north past Humphrey's Ledge main face. Park by Black Pudding Gulley (blue house with large boulder in yard).

Walk past the house and turn left at an obvious property line to the woods. Step left through some boulders and follow orange climbers tape up to the crag. This will dump you out in front of Spongeworthy

If you are standing on the road looking at the large boulder do you walk right or left to the entrance into the woods?

(with due respect to first ascent parties and the work done to develop these routes)

This area is primarily overgrown, dirty, and unclimbable. The approach through the woods, although short, was a heinous bushwhack over loose, bouldery terrain of delicate vegetation. There is no longer a climber trail. Upon arriving, we had difficulty seeing more than one or two climbable routes. Bolts referred to in the write-ups may have been since removed. Moss and slime have taken over the rocks. There was a weird, creepy climbing rope hanging down from one of the cliff faces. Trudging around was difficult and sketchy, and we never found what appeared to be "good rock". It was confusing and disappointing.

It should be noted that this area is not in the Handren book. Seeing as he included almost every single conceivable crag in the area, this does not bode well for the feasibility of climbing at Humphrey's Hollow.
