With one of the highest concentrations of hard classic routes, the Storm Boulders offer a virtual playground for strong climbers to explore and get shut down on. Classic V6ís reign supreme in the Storm Boulders - Terrorist (V6) and Ride the Lightning (V6) are some of the best in the park and are both incredibly unique. For you super humans this area holds roughly 21 routes V6 and harder. Donít forget to tick off the fun moderates like Zap (V3) and Vintage (V4).

 The Terrorist at night..scary!

Terrorist V6 7A  NH : Pawtuckaway : ... : The Storm Boulders
Stand start with the obvious sloper ball in your right hand and a left hand on one of the low crimps. Paste a foot in the corner and pull up to the sloping seam. Rock up until you get a left foot on the starting crimp and stay balanced enough to free up a hand to crimp the higher seam. Technique your way up the slab and topout on jugs. More technical than powerful, but classic either way....[more]   Browse More Classics in NH

Boulder X and Essentials aren't part of the Storm Boulders. Those problems are both included in the Marsh Boulders. Can this area description get rewritten slightly?
