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 heads up to the obvious feature in the middle of the slab just right of the steep, high part at the left end of the slab. Smear up on gentle scoops and bulges including the large, shallow dish. There are no hand holds to be found. It is a really great, pure fiction climb up an ultra clean slab. ...[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.
