Bald Rock is a peak/rock outcropping in South Western CT. The majority of the climbing in this area is bouldering however, there are some routes to be had in the basin as well. Located at the northern end of the property (not Bald Rock proper) is a craggy peak with several cliffs and overhangs. There are 3 distinct cliffs which all have their own character to them.

Getting There 

Hike into the basin towards the peak along the north end. The three cliffs are along the southern flank. See

This climb, appears short from the base but offers excellent movement and a few more moves then you'd expect. Starting on the left side utilizing two decent starting holds, fire up and right for two moves to a large flake (crux). From the flake reach up to the large horizontal, and then follow great rounded holds along arete on your left. Once at the top fin climb right towards the pine tree and topout. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in CT
