This area can be a great stop off to burn out, project hard, or just warm-up for Boulder Natural. Grades range from V0 to V11, and great climbs at many of those grades. This area is frequently forgotten about and will be empty even when Boulder Natural and Round Pond are crowded.

Getting There 

Easy to find, from the Lower Slabs area walk up and left to top of cliff, boulders abound.

Vulcan Tip Rip V3 6A  NH : *Pawtuckaway : Cliff Boulders
This highball face climb up the center of a sweet amphitheater is SHARP! It's not named Vulcan Tip Rip for nothing. Crank off the ground with crisp edges and very small foot holds. Long, sick moves gain ground fast. It would not be wise to fall at the top. Despite the pain factor, this is definitely in the running for the best V3 at Pawtuckaway. It's worth the hike up here to try this problem, but make sure you have some skin on your fingertips when you do....[more]   Browse More Classics in NH

Where is this area exactly? Is it above Upper Cliff or left of lower slabs? It's not up the Dome area is it?

Well Jim, it depends on which boulders you're looking for. Some of the boulders (Chuckie's, Jugs, Sitting Santas, etc) are located directly above the Lower Slabs. The Font Boulder (My Way, Dike Route, etc) and a few other climbs (Back At You, Plate Tectonics) are located just uphill of the first boulders. Then there is a group of climbs (Vulcan Tip Rip, Charlie's Crack, etc) that are located above the Upper Cliff, and are reached by taking a trail uphill (located left of the routes 'Pacman' and 'Tramp') and then walking back to the right directly above the cliff until reaching the amphitheater.

Needless to say, the upper area can be a little hard to find at first.
