As you hike between Boulder Natural and Lower Slabs, there are a few boulders along the side of the trail with a few nice routes, the favorite being Overlooked (V4).... There are a few moderates and a few super hard routes here as well.... A good place to go on a cold day to soak up the southern exposure.... It can get hot, hot, hot in the summer....

UPTATE: Lots of new routes have been cleaned behind Overlooked... Most of the new routes are moderates from v1-v3... To get to them go over or around overlooked and climb over a boulder with a hand to fist sized crack in it... When you get over that you will see a cave where Mrs. Lovett v2+ is (my favorite new route here)... To the left of that is an alcove that houses a few cool routes like Shaving The Pope V2... and to the right you will find Fleet Street V3 and its brother Shadows, Everywhere v3... More to come for sure...

An absolute banger. Start with hands in the obvious horizontal crack and smear feet, make a big move to the jug on the lip. It is possible to dead point, but for style points go for a 3 points off dyno. Cross right hand onto a sloppy jug and move right and left hand out to sloppy crimps. Throw up a heal and rock over into a committing move to a sloppy crack (watch out for the small tree), the rest of the top out is easy, but don't fall.The top out of this route needs to be fu...[more]   Browse More Classics in NH

Any one have any info of the cliff behind this and to the left? looks like a few cool lines!

Matt, i believe it's lower cliff you saw. There is are 6-10 lines gear and mixed (room for more!). I've done a few routes on the right side and I imagine there are some listed here. The old p-way book has them listed out and maybe the stewart green (climb new england) has them. This is also the area of most dependable ice in the park.
