Rock Area Index / Crawford Notch - various / Bore Tide (5.10 or 10.d III)
Directions:  Park at the Willey slabs ice climbing pull off, either side of the road will due. Walk east toward Conway about 50 yards from the pull off. Look across the stream and you will see an old gravel bed that extends into the woods. You should be directly under the slabs. As you look up at the slabs the climb follows the long green streak of rock on the longest center right portion of the slabs. Follow the gravel bed into the woods for about 100 yards, trending slightly left. You should come to a large boulder ten feet in diameter. At this boulder look left and you will see a dry gravel stream bed. Follow this stream bed up to the base of the cliff. Half way up the stream bed you encounter a waterfall. Step right 50' or so and follow a light path that parallels the stream bed up to the base of the cliff. Approach time is fifty minutes to one hour. When you reach the cliff follow the base up and right about 100 yards until you are at the base of the large slabs. Bore Tide is directly straight up and you will see a corner to your left.
