Comments: I'm not too sure what toproping Dull Goldor into submission has to do with anything(besides spray?) but I've done many easier 5.7s in historically sandbagged areas so I agree with most folks that it deserves at least an 8 at the least. I also kind of agree with bmags that being able to keep its original rating is half the fun but it wouldn't matter much since CT's traprock is hardly more than a one time destination for anyone from out of the area.

Comments: Good luck boys, dont forget your helmets, shoulder pads and double(triple) ropes. FYI last time I was there you could find a bolted anchor about ten ft below the prominent arete lip. That line had the most potential to not die on.

Comments: "The ownership of the land is a combination of State Forest, Guilford Land Conservation Trust (GLCT), Town of Guilford, and private ownership. All trails are maintained by the Westwoods Trails Committee of GLCT."

According to many maps and your website quite a bit is state forest land.

Comments: Google 36 Crane Hill Rd Mansfield CT for the exact spot to park, possibly this comment could be added to the crag description since the link provided is down and even the Fasulo book has a bad description of how to get there.

This place is great to bring kids or beginners and definitely worth a visit if you are nearby.

Comments: Lots of zig zagging to make it 5.9. The bolts were put in to minimize rope drag and they were installed in more solid and less crumbly rock. If you stay within 6ft of the bolts there is only one distinct 5.9 Crux.

Comments: Unfortunately Dan, CT climbers tend to ignore gear anchors and tie off small trees 50' back and over trails on a regular basis.

A good variation to the climb is to pull the bulge and climb no hands to the top. 5.7+
