Description

Located just over the Sagamore Bridge and right alongside the Piscataqua River, the boulders reside in a beautiful shady, yet somehow wonderfully sunny pine tree forest less than a mile from the parking lot. While climbing, you will most likely see a few harmless strangers, mainly young folk, passing by on their way to enjoy the shrubbery. The rocks are all what I believe to be granite, but I'm not a geologist so I can't be too sure. The holds on each rock are all secure, though some are sharp and need to be held with a sure grip.

Getting There

If you're familiar with the Portsmouth area, the parking lot where you park is directly across from the Golden Egg in the lot of the Seacoast Mental Health Center. If you're not familiar with the area and possess a smartphone, put in the Golden Egg and park in the parking lot across the street from it. If you don't possess a smart phone and aren't familiar with the area, get yourself into downtown Portsmouth and head towards Rye, you'll pass over the Sagamore Bridge and then take the first turn on your right into the parking lot. Park towards the back of the lot and you should see a trail leading into the woods. It's pretty pronounced so if you don't see it, it's highly possible you're in the wrong place. If that's the case, go to the right place. Once in the right place, follow the path into the woods and the first boulder should be about a quarter of a mile down the trail and up on your left. The rock, when looked at from the right angle, should look like the top half of a duck beak. The next rock is roughly half a mile down the trail and is a long, easy to work with face, with lots of deep cracks, solid footholds, and sturdy ledges.
