This is a great yet small dome of granite just south of the summit. It offers some great steep slabs and some awesome cracks.
From the summit of Mt. Ann, head south. This crag will be obvious.

This is a really cool slab problem on perfect rock. Start on the main face, and get thin feet down low and whatever works for hands. Once established on main face, work over to arete where you will encounter a hold or two. Continue up using a combination of the arete for hands and the main face for feet until you can reach the only decent hold at the top. This is a perfect combination of arete and slab problem that could only be improved by being longer. ...[more] Browse More Classics in MA
A nice crack at South Dome.
South Dome needs some work.

I checked this place out after Pete recommended it. It is indeed pretty cool. The slabs are nice sized (for bouldering) and pretty clean, and the landings are generally pretty good. Being near the summit, it is open and sunny, won't seep, and should dry fast. I think there is some potentially pretty hard friction problems here including some highballs. It's basically a little slab training ground that is likely climbable pretty much year round.
