Comments: Rack your cams on the left side, since most of the will be placed when you are hanging on a right hand jam.

The start is quite a bit harder than 5.8 due to the rock being so polished by now. Not really a good lead for 5.8 climbers.

Comments: I've done this with a double set of BD camelots up to size #2 and a single #3. You'll have to run it out a bit, but the falls are clean.

It also dries quickly, except for the start, which can seep a bit. But even then there are enough dry holds to climb around the wet stuff.

If they are added to the are it will show up on the NH map, which would be nice.

Comments: Ryan,

Can you add the GPS coordinates to the area (43.50676,-71.118114)? If that's done it will show up on the NH climbing map.

Comments: Jimmi, you mention that you got permission to climb there. What is the general access situation. Is the owner ok with others climbing there?

Comments: John,

Could you give more detail on the directions. There are a number of Jericho roads in New Hampshire. GPS coordinates may be useful as well.

Comments: This is where I ended up belaying as well after I missed the bolt belay on the right. While a nice seat and great belay spot, I didn't like that you have place gear in the cracks of a loose block.

Definitely swing leads when using this as the belay.
