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. Thatís the main split boulder.

A classic squeeze chimney follows which then pinches off at the top. You must then leave the security of the chimney for the crux - a surprisingly awkward scrunch move makes the transition to the mossy slab above. You really wouldn't want to pop off here. Relish the summit (like being on the roof of a house!), th...[more] Browse More Classics in NH
