Description 

Fantastic sustained climbing! Some super fun and challenging slab routes can be found here, often with an interesting horizontal crack near the base. Great classic lines with interesting cruxes, a wonderful setting, and the length to back them up. These 80 to 100+ routes are mostly sport bolted with sometimes optional (I guess it is always optional) or required gear in places.

Getting There 

North (right) of the South America Wall, below and south of The Beach. The left most route is Learn to Swim.

Subversive Behavior

Subversive Behavior 5.11- 6c 22 VIII+ 22 E3 5c  NH : Waterville Valley : ... : The Ocean
Excellent granite with a fun mix of climbing and in a wonderful location. Climb past two very cool Horizontal cracks (red camalot). Then move left and make thin moves up the face. A long reach or good footwork gains the left slanting flake. Step onto the flake then continue left to a hard to see bolt, pull up to a lower angle slab above the treetops. Five more bolts up the slab (5.9) lead to a three bolt anchor. Two totally different awesome routes packed into one!...[more]   Browse More Classics in NH
