Does anybody out there have any information on the routes that have "recently" been bolted on Devil's Slide, above the town of Stark? Out for a walk today and saw about 7 bolted lines and a handful of anchors midway up. I grew up in town and started technical climbing once I had left, so in the back of my mind I had always wondered about the rock, which honestly had always and still does, look like a choss pile. Love to hear some beta if anyone has some though. Thanks. Nov 20, 2015

You should try to talk to Jon Sykes and Scott Lovell. On NEClimbs there was mention of some routes there. It does sound like a big choss heap, but maybe with a bunch a crowbarring there might be something good underneath. Nov 20, 2015

A long, long time ago on a rainy "AMC Cannon" weekend, us soggy climbers drove up to Stark. I have always remembered what we saw as a low-angle, mossy slab, but have never been able to find it again...my memory did NOT agree with what Devil's Slide looked like (see photo).

Last weekend was in the area again and stopped to look at Devil's Slide. One of the locals who lived near the slide was outside so I asked him if there was another, lower-angled slide/slab in the area. He said "No".

He also said his son was a rock climber (so I figured he knew at least something about climbing). He said "Some climbers were here and did a lot of rock removal, climbed but didn't make the top." He pointed to the left side of the cliff, just right of a top gully, which looked the cleanest to me. (see photo) Feb 5, 2016

I think I was just reading about that cliff in Bayard's blog (lots of good reading); Square Mountain, NW of Berlin. It looks great. I would love to have more information.

A nice side shot of Square Mountain

from vftt.org/forums/showthread.…-(03-Dec-2010)

It looks like there is another Greens, Greens Ledge, just east of Square, John! I think I should write a 'Climber's Guide To All the Greens, Square and Owls Cliffs of NH' some time to get them all straight. Mar 10, 2016
