Yes I took this picture with a potato.

Description 

There are several decent sized boulders here that are deserving of a scrub and ascents - as well as one large face with a set of bolted anchors on the top (they're questionable and it is probably better to use pads). In the future I intend to update this information, and add photos and routes. Currently it appears as though no one has touched this rock in a time, although the bolted anchors indicate that there have been past ascents.

Getting There 

Upon reaching the bottom of the short trail to the cut, instead of turning right towards the cliffs, take a quick left and then right down a clear path by a telephone pole. Walk straight into the woods for less than 75 feet past a wetland. You will see the boulder/boulders on your right. The highest boulder has an older and seemingly manky bolt anchor drilled into the top.

Start low on two incut holds, working your feet up the ramp to a large jug. Move through a set of smaller holds to a set of smaller jugs, from here you might be able to down climb, but otherwise will have to commit to the crux. Reach up and grab a very small in cut hold with your right hand, and work hard to find the other even smaller one with your left hand. From there adjust your feet and throw to the good crimp high and left at the terminus of a small crack. Catch this hold and throw to the ...[more]   Browse More Classics in New Hampshire
