Description 

The Laboratory refers to a jumble of boulders that extends from the House Boulder all the way to the rock tunnel, all on the left side of the trail as you're heading uphill.

Some are dirtier than the other boulders in the area, and more crystalline, but there are a few good problems, with The Comma Splice being the best of the bunch.

Getting There 

Head uphill from the Widowmaker Area.

The Comma Splice climbs the unlikely bulging face on the left side of the trail as you walk up from the House Boulder. Start with an edge for your left hand, a sloper for your right, and a perfect left foot under the bulge. Throw right hand to a great hold, then throw left hand to another great hold. Press out the topout. The moves flow so well on this problem....[more]   Browse More Classics in New Hampshire
