The South End hosts the majority of the recent development at West Rock SP with some very classy off angle traditional, mixed, and sport multi-pitch routes. The fixed protection can be spaced on easier sections of climbs and there may be some run-outs. Be VERY careful of loose rock, a lot has been done to clean the routes but this is still a major issue in this area -
ALWAYS WEAR YOUR HELMET HERE!
A 70 METER ROPE IS REQUIRED FOR SOME BALLFIELD ROUTES!
Hike up from field, along path uphill and right. Follow trail back left along base of cliff for 100 or so feet to the climbers trail heading up right to the 4th class scramble.
