This rock is full of possibilities. It is a great place for new climbers to have fun and get some experience on the rock and get their technique dialed. Although these problems are fairly easy I suggest them for everyone, they are a lot of fun.

Getting There 

Walk through the Black Jack main path, this boulder is on the left side of the path, it is normally wet around this area and after a heavy rain there is a kind of stream (more like a trickle) that runs to the base of it so if it looks like you are climbing in a dry stream bed, then you are probably in the right place.

The crux of the route is pulling over the top, so be spotted well please.This is a great problem for anyone at all levels and a great first boulder problem (it was mine).Careful ...[more]   Browse More Classics in New Hampshire
