The Marsh Boulders are spread out down the hill towards the marsh and hold a number of classics. Boulder X (V6) is a testpiece that will challenge your topout skills, but try not to put your spotter in the hospital. Bodacious (V7) is pure sloping fun that follows an arÍte to an easier top-out. The top-out can be squat-started on its own as a shorter problem called Bench Warmers (V1). Further down the hill, Touchdown Giants (V2) is an underrated problem on an underrated boulder due to location, and holds many other crimpy variations on the same face that are just as fun.

Getting There 

Once at the Storm Boulders walk back towards the marsh heading down a small decline. Once you can see the marsh, well you are into the Marsh Boulders area.

Featured Route For The Marsh Boulders
The climber is climbing the route to the left of Bubble Wrap. Bubble Wrap is right next to the tree and the stump.

Bubble Wrap V1 5  NH : Pawtuckaway : ... : The Marsh Boulders
The route is to the right of the V0 that is to the right of essentials. This is in the slab section of the boulder near the tree. The start is at the crimp seam about 2-3 feet above the ground and you can mantle with your left hand near the start of the V0. The feet are amazing. Work your feet and get your left foot up to about where your left hand started. From there, there is a solid crimp/edge to the right. If you're short, there's a smaller crimp down to the left of it that you can bump off...[more]   Browse More Classics in NH
