BETA PHOTO: The Split Boulder is home to numerous hard lines

Description 

This area calls to both the highball climber and mutant inside all of us. With the main boulder being 20+ feet, it definitely has a presence in the park. Testpieces abound as the Split boulder hosts a large concentration of hard and/or committing lines. Bones to Bits, an off-width, and The Morgue, a dihedral, will test your ability to stay calm off the deck. Halcyon, Confident Man, Three Amigos, My Little Pony, and Heart of Darkness are some of the hardest problems in the park. Shorter problems exist on the shorter boulders, and a couple of projects are still waiting for a send.

Getting There 

Follow the trail from the parking lot until you cross a stream. There will be a huge boulder on your right. Thatís the main split boulder.

Start with a good undercling for your left hand and a big slopey gaston a little lower with your right hand. Make a move with your right hand to a sharp sidepull/crimp strait above you. Next come up to another slopey sidepull/pinch with your left. Work your feet up and make a move to an edge, match, then on to easier finishing moves. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in NH
