lot's of fun!
This boulder has an obvious well-chalked traverse (Umbrella Traverse V2) as well as a few straight up lines including Satan on a Halfshell (V10).
This boulder, especially the traverse, can be used as a decent warm-up for other probelms in the Blackjacks, also for sport climbers heading up to Starship Enterprise, Triple Corners, and other Northwest Crags.
In spring the base of this boulder can be a mud pit. Look around there might be a tarp to put your pad down on off to the right somewhere... Don't rely on the tarp though, bring your own so your pad won't be covered in mud. Just remember to pack it out, don't leave it there.
It is the first boulder with an obvious traverse as you enter the Blackjacks from the east.

A New England classic. Head straight up and out the overhang. Many different sequences will get you most of the way up the boulder, but the crux for most will be the last couple moves, when you can no longer keep your feet down low.Apparently this was originally a v8 when Sherman sent it, using a blowtorch to dry the holds. The upper jug exfoliated, leaving the problem in its current state. Dave Graham got the first re-ascent. ...[more] Browse More Classics in NH

Hey I was wondering about the project to the right of Satan on a Halfshell. Are there even holds? Is someone trying it? I have done both Satans and was just curious.
