The steepest part of the cliff band, and home of the sport routes in Sandwich Notch. Still bring a standard rack, there are just as many good trad lines here as well.
Keep following Sandwich Notch Rd. past Beede Falls until you cross and re-cross the brook on two small bridges. You'll know your there, as the famous "Pulpit Rock" is just off the road on the right. Park, walk back down the road, and look for a faint trail. Follow the trail across the brook, and it will lead you to the first climbs on the steepest wall in the notch.
