Description 

High quality moderates and super hard problems are abundant in the woods.

Things that aren't abundant in the woods: Crowds...

You will know that you have made it when you cross a small stone wall and see the trail split left and right. To your left will be the Hero Block, straight ahead/right leads to many problems but at the end is the warm-up area, the scoop area and General Lee V2. If go straight and then take a right you will be on your way down to the Swirley Boulder area.

Farthest away from the entrance you will find the Warm-up Boulders, a collection of boulders with 6 or so V0ish problems and a few V2s and even a few V6s. Most climbers start their day here, and then go their separate ways around the circle trail that goes through the woods and passes the majority of the boulders.


Getting There 

Rt. 156 to Deerfield Rd. go 1.95 miles make a left a boat ramp sign, park in lot. cross bridge and take immediate right then take your first left at the peak of the first (very)short hill, enjoy! (5min approach)
You wil then arrive at where the picture for this area was taken. Go left to the Hero block. Go right to Warm-up Area and the Swirley Boulder.

Stand start the left angling arete. Reach high with the right hand and get a high right foot. Lay back the arete to the left, the crux is getting up over your feet in the first few moves. With the right beta it really is V2 (get your left foot in the high scoop.)...[more]   Browse More Classics in NH

I dont know this area well but it seems to me that if someone did it would benefit all if it got split up by boulder. Just a thought though :)

I agree, i know this area by sight not by names. On any given day out there i have no idea what I'm on, not that it really matters. But for curiosity's sake. I would volunteer but i have no idea!

Question: Behind the Trailside Boulder is another boulder, does anyone know the routes that are on this? looks like and arete problem and a slab problem. I could be wrong about the types of problems but this boulder is directly uphill from the Trailside Boulder.

The 'arete' traverse on the left side is great with a couple cruxes, v2ish and on the other side coming out of the cave there is a crack v2ish. There are a bunch (5-6) of great problems on the main large boulder, from 5.7 highballs to v3/v4 harder problems. I just broke a hold off one of these the other day.

Hey, if your facing All Purpose on the valley boulder there's another boulder about 40 feet behind you. What is that / what's the route up the middle?

Here's a video I made during my last three days in New Hampshire before heading back to my home in Colorado. I spent them enjoying the crisp conditions (in between bouts of rain) at Pawtuckaway, specifically Blair Woods. Problems shown are: 'Fuck The Method' (v6/7), Damn The Man (v7/8), Jeremy's Sick Crimps (v9??), Ball Doctor (v5 ), Pimp Juice (v5) and Pinkerton (v4). Enjoy!
