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.

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
