The Swamp Boulders Rock Climbing
Mike Hitting the crimp right before the top out
This set of huge boulders doesn't seem to have seen much climbing yet but there is a good amount of pretty good rock here and it is really close to everything else in Boulder Natural. It gets its name from the swamp that you have to pass through on the approach but the landings (for the most part) are dry and flat.
If anyone knows anything about this area and what's been done please post it.
These boulders are located a couple hundred feet past the Yosemite boulders. The easiest way to find them is by following the Devil's Den trail and looking to your left. After you pass the Yosemite boulders just wait until you see the huge boulder that is really three boulders leaning on each other. You can't miss it.

Hang off this for a few painful seconds and slowly cross to another two finger jam higher up. Don't let it pop, and slap to a decent jug sloper deep in the crack. This move isn't too hard, and once you do it, you are in. Cross to the lie back jug and top out on...[more] Browse More Classics in NH

With this area receiving more attention in the past few months, does anyone thing it would be wise to break this area down further? I was thinking into four sections, Swamp Thing Boulder, Mad Hatter Boulder, Stoner Boulder and Chasm Boulder. Any thoughts? Just figured it might be easier to do it now with just a few routes in the database.

On the first boulder you come to walking from the Yosemite boulder there is a nice looking off width to hand crack on the east side, and a low angle off width on the south side. I was wondering if these had been climbed before. Fun little climbs that could use lots of cleaning...

Went up there this past weekend. Super awesome spot and the lines are rad. Mouthful of Chalk is a Pway classic for sure. Looking forward to finishing it up next time!
