What are some of the best sloper traverses in New England?

Say Gran Torino and you'll get punched hahaha

I'll start of with Tweaky Bird being pretty classic

I really like General lee, I thought the Rose was a decent climb but kinda over-hyped.

Reminds me of another good one, The Wave traverse at Great barrington

Maybe we need a photo feature on newenglandbouldering.com

Not many slopers at Lincoln Woods but the start of the Wave at the woods is kind of slopey and fun (the end is a juggy crack though).

Workhorse at Borderland is kind of a rising slopey traverse with a super cool topout.

Sidewinder at Gilbert Hills is pretty amazing.

Probably harder than V4 if you don't have good endurance.

Let me know what you think. I have had some people tell me it's awesome and some people tell me it is really hard to find anything there and that it is very spread out between good problems. Thanks. Joe M.

Both are very true... the frog boulder is great josh. It's a bit of a hike though. I have an old Lynn Woods map around from my grandfather. Maybe I'll see if I can get it up online sometime. It's pretty neat.
