This unassuming boulder is home to four good lines, three of which are area classics, and all of which are stout. Bring your balance, power, and good skin.

Getting There 

The Spragueasorus boulder is just east of the Zig-Zag boulder and north of the Fisher Block. From the Umbrella Traverse, head west on the trail, taking a right about 60 feet past the Black Jack Crack. The boulder is recognizable by the steep face with the heavily chalked edge at it's base.

A great problem and one for which it may be beneficial to be a little shorter for a change. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in NH

Julian thats cool, i had posted it once but then removed it because i hadnt climbed it, im glad you posted it, its good to have all the routes out there. On the same note Julian I dont know if you have any info on B-Boy stance or The Loomit at the pound (both routes way to hard for me) if you do it would be great to get a description put up for those as well.
