Description 

Bald Rock Peak consists of two levels of outcroppings on it's east side and a plethora of slabs on it's west, created back when glaciers covered this area and split the the peak in a classic ramp and pluck formation. The peak has two levels of outcroppings on the East side and hosts numerous lines and projects. The left end of the lower wall needs some cleaning but appears to have great potential for some real hard climbing. At the base of the lower outcropping is a boulder field with many lines, both established and un-established, on various qualities of rock. The rock up here is sharper then the rest of the rock in the area.

Climb the impressive crack that soars across the bulging face of this beautiful wall. Start sitting at the far right end of the wall and work your way along the crack and face features. When the crack reaches it's peak by the mountain laurel perched on the ledge, follow good holds up the small left facing corner to a comfortable mantle. If it weren't for the ledge along the bottom being 'off' this would be one of the best at Bald rock. Great holds great movement!...[more]   Browse More Classics in CT
