To the north of Bald Rock the basin drops down to the west. The saddle is the area extending north from Bald Rock along the rim of the basin. From the Bald Rock Boulders head north through the woods (almost parallel to powerlines). After a small scree field you will see a large boulder at the bottom of the ridge. Continuing to traverse north along the saddle and above the band you will find another boulder. There are some more slab and easier climbs here as well.

Getting There 

Hike north through the woods from Bald Rock. At the northern end of the small ridge formed by Bald Rock you will find a lone split boulder. From here you can traverse the lip of the basin and find more boulders until you reach the main field.

Though not really an independent line and somewhat of an eliminate, this route still deserves some distinction. Starting on the horizontal to the left of the Sock Eyed Salmon crack. Fire up and left using the crimps on the face and the arete. Topout straight up and left. Sock Eyed Salmon Crack is off (hence the eliminate). ...[more]   Browse More Classics in CT
