A short crag with a few good climbs. This crag is typically shaded and makes for a nice summer crag when the days are longer. The approach is somewhat longer than other cliffs in the area.
From Waterbury: I-84 East to Exit 37 (Fieneman Rd.), make a left at end of ramp. At second light, turn left onto Rt. 6 (Colt Highway). In one mile, you will pass the Tilcon quarry on the left and the road will turn right, downhill. In another 0.3 mile you will see a parking area on the left.
