Location: NH : Pawtuckaway : Devil's Den Bouldering

Comments: Most of the boulders in this area don't necessarily have individual names so that makes it a little tricky. Perhaps with Kemple's guidebook out of print, someone will finally put together a guidebook that New England deserves with accurate information, names and grades and with plenty more problems listed. Maybe I'll have to step up! Though I've already got two guidebooks to finish before I can start another one...

Comments: Sweet, thanks Ian. I knew it had been done before, but didn't know the name as I have an older version of that guidebook. I figured someone would chime in with a name/some info. I'll update the info.

Comments: My understanding is that original finish was to go straight up to the large pocket/slot feature that is to the left of the finishing holds of 'Stand Up' (basically to the left of the 'starfish' hold) and to not use any of the holds on 'Stand Up'. Starting the original way and finishing the original way was given v11 in the black Utah bouldering guide.

A new installment of The Pawtuckaway Project. Footage from the Summer of 2014. Enjoy!

Comments: Super good line. I think this is one of the better problems at Pway. Sustained and varied movement with a thoughtful, high off the deck finish.

Comments: Did it via the the dyno/no hug version today. I might like that way better! Super fun move to the lip. The sit still feels really hard to me...

Comments: Thanks goes out to whoever did the cleaning on it. I didn't lift a brush. All the cleaning was already done. So, perhaps Bryce or someone else?


Location: NH : Pawtuckaway : Boulder Natural : The Swamp Boulders : Cave Project (V11)
By: Christian Prellwitz When: Aug 15, 2014

Comments: I agree that the directions to this climb are a little vague.

Anyhow, it's probably easiest to follow directions to 'Mouthful of Chalk' to get to this set of boulders. If you do that, this project is located in the next cave to the north (probably a couple hundred feet or so away from the 'Mouthful of Chalk' area). It should be fairly obvious when you see it.

And yes, this project looks super high quality. Very cool rock.

Comments: Yah, it's pretty cool. The only detriment is the annoying rock at the base.

I'm sure it's been done before, as have most of the climbs on these boulders.


Location: NH : Pawtuckaway : Boulder Natural : The Swamp Boulders : Chasm Crack (V6)
By: Christian Prellwitz When: Aug 12, 2014

view comment >>
Comments: This climb is really good and very unique for Pway. While some crack technique is useful, this climb is still very bouldery and powerful, and it's likely that being an Indian Creek crusher wouldn't be all that helpful since it doesn't really climb that way.

With some traffic, this should clean up really nicely. I don't think the landing is that bad at all. If you are strong enough to make it through the bottom (which is easy to protect), the top should feel pretty easy. I climbed it alone with ... more >>

Comments: I did it the both ways- as described above and Brendan's way. I like the original line better. Better rock quality and nicer movement, I thought. Starting as per how Brendan suggested, I was able to just go straight to the good edge above and top out from there. Probably a little bit harder starting like that, but not as fun of a line, for me. Just my two cents.

Comments: Not sure of the grade. Definitely felt at least v7. Felt harder than some of the 8's I've done recently, but it's always hard to say. Climb it and let me know what you think!

Probably more like 2.5 stars for me. With some traffic, this climb should clean up a bit and might end up being closer to 3 stars. Or not. :)

Also, if there's an established name for this, let me know and I'd be happy to change it.

Comments: This is a really good climb and is worth seeking out. Excellent movement on good quality rock (for the most part). The line is aesthetic and the moves have nice flow to them.

Comments: I had heard that a key foothold had broken on this sometime over the last 5 years or so. I never tried the climb prior to today so I can't say what it used to climb like, but it felt closer to v5 to me. (It was given v4/5 in the Kemple guide.) It is somewhat difficult to grade because it's a very unique climb, relying more on good beta and technique than pulling power. Give it a go and see what you think!

Comments: The cleaning job was phenomenal. Really well done.

As for the grade, always hard to say exactly, especially since I haven't been on any 6's at Rumney lately. But, perhaps more like v5 or soft v6. Felt pretty similar in difficulty to the line to the right (Cilley Old Man).

I'd like to climb the lines up at Monsters and then see where I think this stands in relation to those.


Location: NH : Pawtuckaway : Ridgeline : Counterclockwise (V8)
By: Christian Prellwitz When: Aug 3, 2014

view comment >>
Comments: Climbed this today in terrible conditions. Not a bad little climb. Definitely one of the more interesting lines in the Ridgeline area. A somewhat awkward start, but fairly easy when you figure out the right body positioning.

The handholds are good quality rock but the footholds are a bit fragile and that takes away from the quality of the climb a bit for me. Kind of hard to grade, for me, but v8ish sounds about right.

Comments: Mark-

Yah, the rock is beautiful over there and super high quality. I've looked at it, but nothing has piqued my interest enough to make me want to clean them up. They look like fun climbs though.

Comments: This is a really good climb and, in my opinion, the best line on the entire boulder. Engaging movement on high quality rock with comfortable holds. My favorite of the newer climbs. Though I still have to get on the stuff up at Monsters at some point soon!

Comments: Sweet Matt. That's awesome. I'd be happy to get some video of you on this and some of the other stuff you've put up recently like 'Garden...' and the problems up by Monsters. We just need to work out a time to meet if you're interested.

Thanks again.


Location: NH : Rumney : *Rumney Bouldering : Black Jack Boulders : The Block : The Block Problem (V9)
By: Christian Prellwitz When: Jul 31, 2014

view comment >>
Comments: To clarify further, when I did it, I started with my left hand on the block crimp/edge and my right on the sloper right next to it. Pulled off the ground and went to the higher crimp with my right hand and then moved my left hand into the incut/pocket thing and made a large deadpoint to the crimp rail with my right hand. The beta from there is kind of personal preference, though still powerful. It felt like somewhere around hard v8/soft v9 this way, though if you're a power beast you might think... more >>

Comments: Matt--

It would be helpful if an admin allowed you to rewrite the description or if you posted a new description in the comments, to clarify the starting holds and the line, given that the beta described above is apparently not accurate anymore. Just a thought.

Comments: Well Ian, I took your advice and checked out this climb again today. Success! I actually did it twice in a row because the move was so much fun.

I used the starting holds shown in the video. I agree that the Kemple guidebook makes it seem like the starting holds are something different. And very inobvious. So, I'm not sure what to say gradewise, given all that uncertainty. It definitely is a very fun climb. The double clutch move with a huge swing is probably the single most fun move at the Bl... more >>

Comments: This is a cool climb, with engaging movement. The large horizontal flake about halfway up is super hollow and is flexing quite a bit. It will likely break at some point in the near future, so tread lightly!
