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.

Getting There

Just great fun and fine rock! P1. 80, 5.11 Start up a short right facing corner to a stance just below the first bolt. A tricky step off the stance gains an undercling to layback crack up to another stance. 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
