Description 

Home to a few problems they are all really fun, the easiest is a V0 called Empire of Dirt and the hardest is a V10 called The Devastating Reverend Tom. The back side is about 15 feet tall so be careful.

Getting There 

This is the smaller of the two boulders on the side of the road you park on. The backside is where 3 of the 4 climbs are.

Important: Avoid hanging out in the road or close enough to it to make drivers nervous. This has been a serious issue at local town meetings, to the point where they seriously considered blowing up the boulders.

Sit start with hands on sidepulls the right one being very small and with a decent foot, move your right hand first to a slopey crimp/sidepull with a small thumbcatch, then comes the crux move to what has been described as an ear, it is a two finger crimp or a horrible gaston so pick you poison. From there dyno up and right and finish with Skip and Sandy (V3). ...[more]   Browse More Classics in NH

Be careful, as of 7/23/14 there's a fair amount of broken glass around the base of the boulder near Tweekers. I picked up what I could see but watch out, there's probably still some left
