Getting artistic on Greyskull

Description 

A tallish bouldering wall and handfull of high quality, but small erratics can be found on the northern most side of the lake, near the boat launch

Getting There 

Drive west on 165, past the pond and in to CT and look for signs to the boat ramp on the right. Take forge Hill Rd, a left at the split and then a right onto North Shore Rd which will take you to the boat launch. Make sure you don't bomb down the small roads from 165 to the ramp. There are often people strolling on the road in this lakeside community.
There is a wall off the back side of the parking lot. For the boulders, take the blue dot trail from the ramp across the stone bridge east along the edge of the pond for a minute. The boulders are on your left.

This is a nice little spot, especially near the water with the sun shining in. Some of the problems are quite good. The rock is finely grained and mostly solid
