Airation at Cathedral is beautiful, well protected and a gimme' at .11a. As a bonus you could take in Camber while in the neighborhood, which is also superb.

Screaming Yellow Zonkers
ahhhh great question. Single best to break into the grade. airation, lichen delight, castaways, screaming yellow zonkers, to name a few are all greatsingle pitches. Eliminate, pendulum, lights in the forest, childrens crusade (with direct finish), Direct direct (.10+, but great)are some good ones. I've heard that fruit cup is great with a point or 2 of aid. Have fun! (camber scares me, led it once and that was enough!) nhclimber

"camber scare me " HAH
5.11 may be the best grade for trad climbing in NH.
Budapest
Jack the Ripper
Mordor Roof (you can rap in)
The Bridge
Anything on the Airation Buttress
The Arete
Women in Love (maybe 12a) but bolted crux

That should get you started
