This crag has some really nice rock. Unfortunately, it is just at that height where it is short enough that it feels like a pain to keep setting up and moving TRs, but you really don't want to fall when soloing, even with pads. It is well worth a visit if you live relatively near by. Wear your orange around hunting season.
Last I knew, there is a small bolted area nearby, off Yosemite Road, just over the border into CT, with some fun, short pocket routes, including CT's first 5.13. I believe it was to the north of the road, over a ridge line. Unfortunately, it is/was on private property which got posted, so became off limits. I haven't been there in many years, so it could be covered in houses now for all I know. It might be worth going to see what the current situation is.

The crag you refer to on Yosemite Valley Road in Dayville is heavily posted. There is a No Trespassing sign every 20 feet. It's too bad as it is a decent cliff. I have an old photo of Whitey climbing on the 5.9 arete.

|It was posted no trespassing when we climbed there, I seem to remember someone just taking down a bunch of the no trespassing signs and pleading ignorance. The end of climbing there for me, came when we got chased out by a couple german shepards and an angry neighbor who set them on us...|

|There are some nice bouldering spots from v0-2 on the left of the crag. It is a bit annoying to keep moving top ropes, so brings some pads. Some of the rock is loose and very sharp.|
