Description 

The Barnyard Boulders are often climbed on, although these two boulders are obviously absent from the guidebook for reasons unknown. The small cluster of problems range from V0 to V8 with the majority of them being under V3 and is a great place for a beginner or a warmup. Mostly known for their diagonal cracks, these boulders also offer a few aretes, a fun sloper dyno, and some crimpy face climbs. The landings are all flat, you’ll never fall too far, and not surprisingly, there’s usually chalk on everything.

Getting There 

When walking into Natural from Reservation Rd, cross the stream and turn left around the backside of the Zoo. Pass over the remains of a tree and the Barnyard boulders will be on your right.

Featured Route For The Barnyard Boulders
My wife Nicole on classic crack...

Classic Crack V2 5+  NH : Pawtuckaway : ... : The Barnyard Boulders
Start on the right/low end of the crack on a juggy hold with a really good foot (yes a good foot at pawtuckaway, but dont get your hopes up for more)... Traverse up and left to a good but tiny crimp, the feet become miserable smears and you continue left along the seam past a very small pod or 2 in the crack that serve as sloping crimps... From here finish with a reach to the end... I think its V2 for tall folks and a little harder for shorter types... enjoy... ...[more]   Browse More Classics in NH
