Description 

The Smarts Brook Area encompasses all of the climbing that is accessed off the Smarts Brook Trail. From the most convenient bouldering in the area, to one of the most inaccessible cliffs in the Waterville Region, Smarts Brook has something for everyone--that is, if everyone likes hiking and getting lost.

Getting There 

Drive up Highway 49 toward Waterville. Shortly after the historic Sandwich Notch Road veers off to the right, you'll see the fairly large parking area for the Smarts Brook Trail on the right side of the road. Park there. All climbing is accessed off the Smarts Brook Trail.

Rock Climbing Photo: Cool but Contrived

Cool But Contrived V2 5+  New Hampshire : WM: Waterville Valley : ... : After Work Boulders
Cool but Contrived climbs a face just left of a short crack. Start standing with your right hand on a hold just left of the crack. Move left hand to a small gaston and then move your right hand to a hidden crystal on the sloping lip. Make a fun move up around the lip to a hidden dish up and left, and negotiate a sloping topout. If the crack on the right wasn't so close, this problem would gain a few more stars....[more]   Browse More Classics in New Hampshire
