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.



I ran over to the Stone tower area, without much time so I didn't get on anything but....I thought the problems and rock quality looked really good. All the holds felt very friendly and not sharp. Also, the super project on the Stone tower boulder looked amazing! I'll be returning at some point to further explore the area.

Bulletproof, V6 at Pawtuckaway. Definitely a great example of a sloper traverse, whether or not it's good depends on how frustrated you get with it... J Meagher

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




Wet Banana to the left seems more of a sloper problem than Tweaky Bird.


How about Slick 50 at Lincoln Woods? No exactly classic but not that many others in the area.

Maybe underneath but not on the holds that the traverse follows. Joe M.
