Description 

This is a small area, that is still young in terms of development. It holds some incredible projects and a few established gems. The rock is a combination of gneiss and schist, making for some truly unique features and textures, sort of like a combination of rumney and great barrington rock.

Getting There 

Take Route 2 west to Charlemont MA, a few minutes after going through the downtown take a right onto Zoar Rd., and follow it 5-10 minuntes until you reach Zoar Picnic Area and Campground. Park on the right in a large parking lot.

Grab the sloping edge halfway up the face with your right hand, and do the crux, which involves doing a move from the left hand slopey pinch, to the big right hand pinch.
