This is a nice little chunk of rock with an obvious prow. It has a bunch of fun lines for you on excellent rock. The namesake route is a really fun low-end moderate that will have you smiling. It actually lies just north of Wampatuck Rd. It is approached via hiking up the dirt road a short way, then breaking off right on the first faint trail, heading E for a ways. It lies just N of Burger Boulder. Descend to the R.
To get here, drive I-3/SE Expressway to exit 8, go to Wampatuck Rd, towards Chickatawbut Rd. Park on the N side of the road past Bunker Hill Quarry. Walk back E and find a dirt road on top of an embankment covering a pipeline. Faint trails break off to the right.

Like many of the classic routes at Rattlesnake, this route will feel a grade harder for those with short arms....[more] Browse More Classics in MA
