Description 

Nira Rock Urban Wild is a new, mostly undeveloped area in Boston's Jamaica Plain neighborhood. It is managed by a non-profit group called Friends of Nira Rock, and is free and open to the public. It is a puddingstone face with a variety of features and textures. There are currently two routes with bolted anchors, and the potential for many more routes, both top rope/sport and bouldering. It is an urban park, so beware of broken glass in and around the rocks.

Getting There 

From Downtown Boston: Take the Green Line to Heath St. Walk southeast on Heath St. Turn right on Schiller St. Turn right onto Minden St. Turn right onto Grotto Glen Rd. At the end of Grotto Glen Rd, follow the paved path to the rocks.

Uncharted 5.9+ 5c 17 VI 17 E1 5a  MA : Nira Rock
Start directly behind the tree that looks like it has five trunks. The crux of the route is at the beginning, the first ten feet or so of the climb. After climbing the first ten feet, traverse to the diagonal hand crack about 5 feet to the left. There is a loose block in the crack, so be careful what you grab. Once you reach the crack, the rest of the climb is about a 5.6/5.7. Continue straight up to the bolted anchors....[more]   Browse More Classics in MA
