    A fence post needs to be in this location.

    The spec for the hole is 3' deep.

    What is the next step? Cut the post at 9 inches and pour a large swath of concrete?

    Go buy a few 1/2”x6” screw in wedge bolts, drill into the rock 4” and screw them halfway in. Cut the post and cement it in.

    I for one, know that Wolfeboro is not beach sand, I have planted many granite bounds, I have always used 0.75hr./bound in my surveying estimates, it takes 10 minutes just to get the hole refilled & tamped

    The screws bond the concrete to the rock or something?

    LOL correct and I have no faith that digging will be easy. This is going to be the hardest part of the project, will start hand digging then all options are open! The combo of roots and rocks should be interesting!

    if it becomes too much, I might be able to take a drive up, with my Toe-Hoe, roots can become a challenge when digging by hand, seems like you always have to sacrifice one of your cutting tools to dirt work

    More or less, yes. Concrete alone will likely not bond to the stone, the wedge bolts will act as a pin mechanically locking the two together.

    my installer drove a pipe into the ground by the rock bent the pipe sleeved the post over the pipe and put a screw from through the post into the pipe and added concrete...could probably drill the rock and stick a pipe in the hole and do the same thing
