The Split Boulder Rock Climbing
BETA PHOTO: The Split Boulder is home to numerous hard lines
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.
Follow the trail from the parking lot until you cross a stream. There will be a huge boulder on your right. Thats the main split boulder.

One of the proudest lines in the park. Start sitting on an obvious good undercling, then work up to a desperate move waay left to a sloping, friction-dependent gaston. Stick this, then make a couple difficult moves on slopers (a couple ways to do this section, possibly with a kneebar) to the lip. Top out, then traverse left on crispy rock and continue up the slab to the top of the boulder....[more] Browse More Classics in NH
