Description 

Fantastic sustained climbing! Some super fun and challenging slab routes can be found here, often with an interesting horizontal crack near the base. Great classic lines with interesting cruxes, a wonderful setting, and the length to back them up. These 80 to 100+ routes are mostly sport bolted with sometimes optional (I guess it is always optional) or required gear in places.

Getting There 

North (right) of the South America Wall, below and south of The Beach. The left most route is Learn to Swim.

I just know this is what everybody is looking for in a rock climb. Nearly one hundred feet of intense slabbing!After clipping the first bolt of Sex on the Beach break right and step onto a horizontal crack (red Camalot). Now on to the business micro crimp, edge, palm, and whatever else you can do to keep moving upward. Nearing the top the climbing seems to ease some.For the nature of this route I found the clipping stances far less than horrendous. They are actually quite friendly adding to...[more]   Browse More Classics in NH
