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.

This is a short problem but requires power so got at it if V2 is your limit this will be tough.Awesome fun, I do this probl...[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
