Saw these boulders in the winter and finally checked them out. Anyone climbed these before? Putting me and my friend as the FA's for now. Barely needed any scrubbing! There's one real good boulder with quality rock and 5 or 6 routes; one descent boulder with alright quality rock with (at least one) great problem. Potential on a few other boulders, a P'way Balance Boulder look alike with a mushroom looking traverse on top, not sure of the quality, would have tried it with a spotter to move the pad, if anyone's up for it let me know! Another potential but has a tree in front of the problem. Worth stopping by if your in the area.
Take Mammoth Rd. (it's in a lot of towns) towards Pelham, right before you get to Dracut MA (from the north) take Sherburne Rd. on the right, again, from the north. About 200-300 yards on the right is a gate with a green and white sign that reads Tree Farm. Park in front of this gate. Try to go slow, even though the chance of a local riding your rear is pretty good, people go fast on this road. It's kind of hard to see since it's behind some shrubs till your right next to it. Walk into the "woods", you'll see when you get there.

Cross My Heart V4+ NH : Pelham Tree Farm Boulders
Hang on the good shelf all the way to left side of the main face of The Broken Heart Boulder. Pull right to the start of the V0 "Heart Burn." (try to avoid the rock near your feet) I originally started here and added the longer start right after I did it once. Cross the shelves. Make a hard couple moves across the fairly blank white stripe to gain the next shelf (crux, awesome!) Finish up the V1 "Another Little Piece." Could be a reeeeally hard dyno above the crux on this.
