Comments: If the roof is wet it becomes the crux, had a very interesting encounter with it this weekend.

Comments: There is now a fixed bong in the large crack between the second and third bolts, and another a bit to the left in the next crack/overhang. Thanks to whoever put them up, its pretty run out without atleast the first one.

Fun route, grade varies with the holds you decide to use, I think using the corner helps quite a bit.

Comments: Gave this a try today, falling mid-crux with slack makes for an interesting situation. I had the privilege of waving to my belayer as he flew past me...good pumpy start though.


Location: NH : Pawtuckaway : Blair Woods : Crack Boulder Area : Crack Arete (V3)

Comments: Feels way too easy for V3? Had a friend who usually does V1 in a couple of tries nearly flash it. The foot nubbin to the right also broke off, but left a high friction surface about just as good.

Comments: I thought this was a decent-large boulder...and then I saw the people in the bottom left. Amazing rock feature.

Comments: Was listed as a V2 in the guidebook, I went straight up and mantled on the incredibly slopey holds, which seemed more V2ish rather than going up and right.

Comments: Ladd, I believe Almond Joy and Mounds are on either side of these routes, one being 5.9- and the other 5.9+, not sure which though.

Comments: The guidebook says this is a sit start, the on V0-like start seems to be from more of a crouch. What do you guys think? The "rounded flake" part described in the book seems to be much higher than one can reach from the ground, even on a mat or two....(I'm 5'10")

Comments: Didn't really feel like a V1. I haven't done anything over a V2/3 and this felt almost like a walk in the park. I liked it overall though, I topped out to the right of the arete to avoid mantling with a 15ft fall on one pad ;)
