Description 

How do I know that im at the Central Section?.... Well, as with all the areas, you will notice lots of glass and litter, but there are better ways to tell such as the most popular "boulder" problem on the cliff.... Right in the middle of the cliff, you will notice a blank face with an almost too perfect starting hold, leading up to well...almost nothing...then a good ledge.... This is what I call "Face To Face" though it goes by other names as well.... Lets say the center section is everything right of the Beehive Overhang over to the Devil 5.9+...

Another nice route in this area climbs a crack up a smooth slab to a small, pine tree this is easy to find and a really great route.... Beware the crux is going through the upper overlap above the crack....

More nice, moderate climbing can be found here as well as a few more challenging routes.... Beware of glass in holds and falling bottles....

Getting There 

Walk from the road up the hill to the middle of the cliff....

The first half of this route hosts the nicest crack on the cliff in my opinion... You will see the crack 15 feet up on a slab, a small pine tree growing at its top... Climb up easy ground to the right and make a traverse to gain the base of the beautiful (but a little too short) crack... Jam and lock your way up the crack to the small tree and a nice ledge... Climb the grove above to the base of the overhang with cracks in it... Optional belay here... Climb the right hand of the two cracks in t...[more]   Browse More Classics in NH
