Fantastic sustained climbing! Some super fun and challenging slab routes can be found here, often with an interesting horizontal crack near the base. Great classic lines with interesting cruxes, a wonderful setting, and the length to back them up. These 80 to 100+ routes are mostly sport bolted with sometimes optional (I guess it is always optional) or required gear in places.

From this stance follow bolts past a small overlap up a low angle but extremely thin face/slab ending in a big solution pocket at chains.I found a small mono pocket on the upper face, memorable! P2. 90, 5.10+ From the anchor climb up an easy low angle slab past more solution pockets to the ba...[more] Browse More Classics in New Hampshire
