Description 

This area like many in CT is reflective of the phrase south of the tracks. Located on the southern cusp of the basin this boulder field looks to have some interesting lines however, the rock quality is not the best and there's a stream that runs around and under some blocks.

Getting There 

Hike into the basin and then traverse south along the eastern rim. Or hop over Bald Rock via the path to the Backside and walk north along the drainage. Once you get to the stream follow it down and left over the ridge into the South Side boulders.
