This is the prominent face that you first come to. This has potential for steep sport, trad, and bouldering. Unfortunately there is very little info on this area (i checked summit post) and have looked at every CT/New England guide and have not found any info. There is lots of chalk - obviously people climb here.

This section of cliff is characterized by some prominent features - first a right-angling crack, a large roof, a left-angling weakness, and lots of graffiti at the base.

Getting There 

From the top of the Great Ledge, hike down hill just past a stone wall. Go down hill and angle right towards the base of the cliff.
