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.

This is the very thin line of crimps up the overhanging wall to the left of Halcyon. Start with a sidepull and a very small right handhold and make an exceedingly hard move to a decent edge. Continue with interesting, difficult moves on decent edges to the lip, then top out and follow Halcyon up the slab to the top of the boulder. The crux is the first move, but the rest is no gimme....[more] Browse More Classics in NH
