Every cliff at this area is toprope only as of right now but I would love if they could get bolted and I'm sure I wouldn't be the only one to think that
The ski area can also be reached from Lyme, NH going east through Lyme Center on Grafton Turnpike, staying on Grafton Turnpike by taking the right-hand branch at a "Y" intersection.
Make the hike from there to the crags. Walk back south from the ski area. A little ways before the pond you will see a pull off (no parking!) and the trailhead. Given the distance, a short mile, I drop off partners and ride a bike from the lot (I'm not lazy, it saves climbing time). Know that the Dartmouth Outing Club frequents the southern of the two crags, having permission. Bring a 30-50 foot length of rope to tie off trees back from the cliff edge for excellent top-roping.
