Shaded and sometimes buggy, this area has the state's best 5.10 crack. Crack in the Woods should be on every 5.10 climber's tick list. At one time, there were sport routes on this cliff, but in a fit of ethics, they were chopped. Many have talked of reinstalling these routes, but as of yet, the chopper has gotten the last word.

(edit - Closet Full of Klonopin was rebolted)

Getting There 

Park on the Kanc about 1.3 miles west of the Albany Covered Bridge at a small pullout above a primo swimming area. Cross the river, and walk straight into the woods, maybe following a drainage to a cliff.

From David Aguasca: Alternate approach, recommended for the spring (don't try crossing the's an easy way to go for a swim): Park at the Albany Covered Bridge Parking. On the north end of the bridge is the beginning of the Nanamocomuck Ski Trail. Take that for approximately 20-30 minutes west, until you see trees on the right, marked with orange paint (don't know who did this.) Follow the markers up until you hit a shallow drainage, and follow this uphill until you hit the cliff band. The Crack in the Woods should be pretty obvious.
