Description

The Sawmill is a bouldering field that consists of one mini cliff band, with potential for further expansion in surrounding area. The rock is solid/strong granite in a secluded area that is slightly shady due to the tree coverage. Originally found by Joe Pearson while running through College Woods. He brought it to our attention that their was potential for climbing and with a bit of cleaning numerous routes were put up varying from V0-6. The Sawmill area gets its name from the slightly visible UNH Sawmill.

Getting There

The boulder is located in Durham, NH in College Woods. Fastest access is from the Bryant Apartments on 155A (Mast Road). Park at the UNH West Edge Lot. Cross the street to the apartments and walk to the back right corner of the apartment parking lot. A small trail weaves through an overgrown field 150 feet before turning sharply left into the woods. Once in the woods, continue on the trail another 300 feet. Leave the path and head to your right (perpendicular to the trail) for 300 more feet (crossing a wet area then up and over a small rise). This will bring you to a nice clearing and the ledge. 5 Minute approach.
