Up and to the right of the Darth Vadar Crag, there is another small cliff with a remarkable variety for its size. no 2 routes of the same grade. This and the shade of tall trees makes this a popular area for beginners and groups of climbers of different levels of ability. Routes range from vertical 5.4 to steep 5.11, and all of them are worth doing though none are truly classic.
At the Darth Vadar junction, take a right toward Bonsai and a quick left following the trail as it bends around above Darth Vadar proper. The trail drops you right in the center of the crag. The harder climbs are to your left, easier on right.

Squall 5.10c/d 6b+ 21 VII+ E3 5b NH : Rumney : Upper Darth Vadar
This climb is at least a letter grade harder for the short climber.Start out on the ledge right of three easy pieces and get you hands into a nice sharp jug. Make a move and gain some move sharp moves(will be hard for short climbers to make the reach) continue up then move up and left out bigger holds to anchors. Excellent footwork is required for this climb to feel do-able for the shorter climber.I would not suggest this climb for the 5.10 climber with soft gym hands....[more] Browse More Classics in NH
