Boulder Natural is nestled in the forest alongside a stream and is home to roughly 30 boulders and 150 problems that have been climbed on for decades. The high quality and highly featured glacially deposited granite offers up slopers and crimps galore and climbs ranging from V0 lowballs to V12 highballs. Classics range from the striking Ride the Lightning and tricky Terrorist to the friendly Hobbit Hole and fierce Halcyon. In other words, there’s something here for everyone, but keep in mind that the area dries slower than other areas in the park given its shady nature.
Continue past lower slabs west along swamp 5 min and behold the boulders.
Alternatively if you drive in from the South, walk along the trail from your car east and stop when you hit the huge boulders.

There is never chalk on this one. Maybe because it's quite tall. Fortunately, the crux is down low. Start on the left side of the arete and slap up on technical ground with a few reachy moves and small feet. Scary moves at a crack/corner lead to a horizontal crack already high off the deck. Then make a great traverse left in the do-not-fall zone to the path of least resistance to the top (summit). Downclimb cracks and chimneys on a different side....[more]Browse More Classics in NH
The large crash pad was much appreciated. Although not for myself, it lead to some sends on Ride the Lightning. Big ups to whom ever carried that thing in.
