Murray Boulder Rock Climbing
The Murray Boulder is the kind that drives you crazy when you're wandering in the woods looking for boulder problems. It looks small and unclimbable from all but one side. This one side, the side facing away from the trail, is undercut and has the potential for a couple steep problems. It just goes to show that you must walk around every rock when you're scoping for problems. There's no telling what could be lurking around the next corner.
Take a right at the cairn, and follow the trail uphill. When you see the XX Boulder on your immediate left, turn right, and you'll see the short slabby sides of the Murray Boulder. The good problems are facing away from you on the other side.

Cheer Up Murray V4 6B New Hampshire
: WM: Waterville Valley
: ... : Murray Boulder
Cheer Up Murray climbs the steep face on the side of the boulder facing away from the trail. Start sitting with your hands on a good jug. Use a left foothold, and lever up to a bad(ish) crimp. Match the crimp (crux) and move left to a good hold. The topout looks easy, but you might be surprised by how tricky/awkward it is. I usually don't like the short problems, but Cheer Up Murray flows really well, and is a great addition to the growing Welch and Dickie circuit. ...[more] Browse More Classics in New Hampshire
