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.

This super crimpy bulge may be a lowball, but the beta is interesting and the dynamic crux is somewhat fun. Sit start to the left on two obvious crimps. The right crimp is smaller now than it used to be due to breakage. Pull off the ground and slap right into better holds, then prepare to dyno up to a good three finger crimp before finishing with a very easy topout. Warm up your fingers before touching this one and consider using a dropknee or two. Great for solo missions, but this problem ...[more]   Browse More Classics in NH
