Description 

The Fisherman Boulder (also known as the Fundy Boulder) sits along the Fundy Trail near the back of Fundy Cove. While it is a solitary boulder, it's well worth the walk. Rio Rose put up a number of problems years ago when he discovered Blair, and it was recently recleaned and more new lines were put up. Don't miss ARP and if you're strong, test out your shoes on Voodoo Child (The Big Squeeze).

Getting There 

From the parking lot, cross the bridge and continue down the road rather than turning onto the trail to Blair. Walk for about 10-15 minutes around the cove and the boulder will be on your left. It's hard to miss.

Start sitting with the right hand on a low sidepull and the left hand on whatever you can come up with. Figure out where to put your feet- not as obvious as it first seems. Pull off the ground, slap higher on the right arete and then work your way up the slabby scoop using the arete and good footwork. A very Pawtuckaway kind of experience. Probably doesn't get climbed much, but it's actually quite good. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in NH

Has there been much exploring in the woods across the path from this boulder? I saw a lot of smaller boulders out there didnt know if there were some bigger ones out there too?

the area has been pretty well scoured. Continue down the path toward magic pond and there are a bunch of great routes out there and still potential. Also, there are some nasty large boulders along a couple the established mountain bike trails. I'm interested in a couple roped routes on them, but highball bouldering galor. looking to go out there as soon as the weather cooperates.

Saw someone pull a few moves on it. Way hard and technical. Brett Meyers FA? Slabbin!

Brett cleaned it but I think Ben got the FA. It's called Voodoo Child, but it's in a guidebook as the Big Squeeze. Somewhere around V9/10.

Voodoo Child is so sick. Keith broke the original starting foot and banged his chin so now the foot is a couple inches closer to your hand. It makes the first move that much more difficult. From there you hit this wierd sloper undercling bulge in a slab power move and shift your feet to two high bad poppy feet. Then you go super balanced and slow to a high really poor invisible crimp. From there I turn my right foot into the starting goodish crimp and get a toehook hand match on the wild bulge. I found this to really be the only way to get that hand off without going off balance. My arms are at full extension pretty much here. I then got my left hand to a thumbercling intermediate in another bump power move that makes you splutter and quake. I was shut down on the topout. There are just these heinous flat slopers and then a little tiny two finger crystal crimp. I think the next move is a deadpoint to these two good holds and then you top out. This is way harder than anything i've ever done and will be excited to send.

noah--

i'd be psyched to check it out, being a huge fan of slabs. but, i won't be back in nh until early may. if you're still looking for a partner then, i'll definitely venture out with you. hopefully it won't be too warm by then.

Would someone add this V10 slab route and maybe a picture or two (even a video?). I'd love to see it. Must be one of the harder slab routes in N. America.

Then there is this apparent V13 from Japan:




Easy!

i don't know about its standing among North American problems, but it would be very cool if it was one of the hardest.

Bryce (or anyone with info)--

Had a few questions about two of the lines on this boulder. (especially before I post them up)

The v6 to the right of ARP ('Jaime Has A Gun'). Seems like this is more of a crouch start or with some stacked pads? Obviously you can start with your right hand on the flake, but where does the left start? On the bad sloper? Or one of of the crimps up and left?

Also, the V6 to the left ('Sushi Don'). I used the detached/kicker block for the first few moves and to generate some spring to the high sloper out right. Is this right? Seemed right for the grade.

Had to ask the guru! Thanks in advance.
