Description 

Bouldering near the base or Rand Mountain and Moose Mountain. The area has a good variety of problems. The Moose boulders have some mega-highballs and is a bit of a bushwhack to get there so I am going to be trying to establish some sort of trail. The grades are an estimate so they may be off a bit and some problems may need some more cleaning. Also if you want me to show you the area or want to help cleaning off some problems send me a PM.

Getting There 

Park at the Ellis R Hatch(the same area as Rand Mountain) area on Kings Highway in New Durham and head up the road. The map should be helpful for the fin and swamp boulders. Ill post more detailed topos soon especially of the moose boulders, its a bit of a maze out there.

The Fin boulder is located on right side of the road on the way up to the swamp boulders about a 100 yards from the parking area.

For the Swamp boulders keep walking up the road until you see a swamp on the right. There is a hole on the left side walk through and straight up about 50 feet until you see 3 large boulders. The problem "Leaf house" is on the a boulder 50 feet up the road on the left.

For the Moose boulders keep walking past the swamp and the road will split. Go right for the south boulders and left for the north boulders.

For the south boulders continue all the way to the end of the field and head towards the mountain at the end. Follow the obvious trail, which will take you to the entrance boulder on your right. If you come out bring a brush there's a lot of potential. More topos will be coming soon.

North boulders: coming soon

Ryan,

Can you add the GPS coordinates to the area (43.50676,-71.118114)? If that's done it will show up on the NH climbing map.

Ive moved to Utah since a few years ago. If you need any info though just send me a message. There's some stuff way up in there and it was a cool place since I lived down the street. Check out Rand Mountain while your there too. Some cool climbing and really secluded.
