The Streambed Boulders are a collection of four boulders that practically sit in the stream. Imagine that. The two closest to the Illmob Boulder are called the Kissing Cousins, while the stream actually runs beneath the other two. Most of the problems here have been left out of the guidebook, but nearly all of them are worthwhile. Classics include EZ Cheese, the Riverbed, and Seinfeld, but for something more difficult, give Provia a try.

Getting There 

Locate the babbling brook and follow it upstream. Ok, so thatís probably not the best approach. From the Zoo, look across the stream and youíll see the Streambed Boulders. From the Illmob, look towards the Zoo. These boulders are sitting between the Zoo, the Illmob Boulder and the Yosemite Boulder.

While most people simply walk past this slightly overhanging arete, it deserves more love than it gets. The movement is fun, the foot beta has a techy nature to it, and there are numerous ways to unlock the sequence. Sit start with your right hand pinching the arete with the help of a good thumbcatch. For your left hand you can either use the bad sloper or the small razor blade. Pull off the ground and stand up into the left hand undercling. Slap up the arete, work your feet, and then choos...[more]   Browse More Classics in NH
