Description

Fessenden Crag is a super secluded small cliff on the Massachusetts and New Hampshire border. It's a very wooded and shady area. The cliff face has a couple interesting routes which can be considered highball bouldering, but I would use ropes. There are a few scattered boulders as well as the cliff. Super sharp gritty granite with large crystalline structure. This is a small area but has a decent amount to offer for its size including a classic boulder problem.

Getting There

The long ass approach: park at the end of Fessenden Hill Road. Walk past the gate on the jeep trail/road. If you find Fessenden Block, continue past up the hill. Take a left onto an unmarked trail. Currently there's some regrind asphalt and some plastic for erosion control at the beginning of the trail. Take the trail to the "T", and hang a right. The cliff face will be a short ways up on the left. You can't miss it.

The short approach: park on the cul-de-sac on W. Hill Road in Brookline, NH. Be courteous, because this is a nice, quiet neighborhood. Walk past the gate where you cross over into Massachusetts. Take your second right onto the trail described above with the regrinds. Hang a right at a "T". You can't miss the cliff.
