This wooded crag makes an excellent winter crag. It is south facing and gets sun for most of the afternoon. The summit offers pleasant views of the eastern side of the ridge. In the summertime, there are persistent mosquitoes, and the right side of the cliff weeps.
Follow the metacomet trail from Pinnacle or from from Rt.6. The last time I visited there was a climbers train emanating from the neighborhood west of the crag.
