Sit start with your hands on a large jug low on the right side of the arete, almost where it meets the birch tree. Your feet will have a nice rail pretty low, and almost close to where the boulder meets the exposed water. Slap up to a decent right hand sloping crimp (crux) and reach high to a rounded edge for your left. Crank up jugs to the top.

Crawling from a just above a puddle to topping out upright on two legs is quite the evolution!


This route is located on the Swamp Boulder, the smaller boulder you will see on the way to the cut boulder.

Sorry about that! There may be some boulders over by the ice climbing area "Holt's Ledge" at the Dartmouth Ski Jump. I recommend checking it out next time you're up there and maybe even documenting what you find if it is worthwhile at all. Sep 22, 2016

A reasonable question... gf lives in Hanover and was on my way up with an extra two hours to spare. Wanted to boulder and this place was closest place I could find. Sep 22, 2016

We actually switched the site to show the consensus rating rather than the originally rated grade earlier this year so you dont need to update things going forward. Thanks for posting this spot. Nice little spot to spend an hour or two.

Also beta is now, start on jug, throw for big hold on face, then finish up arete. Sep 18, 2016
