The Island Boulder seen from the Approach Trail.


A tall proud boulder with some good quality problems about three to five minutes from the main parking lot.
This block has a variety of holds, and a flat landing making it a great warm up or training destination for locals.

This boulder is about 15 feet tall at its apex.

Getting There 

From the main paved parking lot at the Hopkinton- Everett Dam, look across the road to a grass clearing. At the back right-hand side of the grassy clearing there is an old trail. Follow this trail for about 10-15 yards then cut in left. You should be on the left side of an old rock wall. Follow the rock wall until it ends then venture onwards about 15 more yards. From here you will see the giant boulder sticking out of the hillside on the left.

Sit start at a high right hand crimp and a decent left hand hold. There are different options for foothold, although pulling off the ground is hard and committing. Reach up to a good edge and move left to more edges and then launch up to a big sloper shelf or a crimp rail slightly lower. Continue climbing up and right avoiding the tree and then top out....[more]   Browse More Classics in New Hampshire
