Western Coastal Slope Rock Climbing
WarZone Crag, SW CT, Undeveloped.
Climbing in this part of the state is difficult was find until sites like mountainproject.com
came around. Now it's a little less difficult but there are many issues and few good crags. Given the long history of climbing in CT and the dense population, this area of CT has many little areas spread around which have been explored and climbed by many of the best climbers of their time. As such, there is very little which has not already been climbed at one point or another in established areas unless you are climbing at the highest levels of the sport. Get out have some fun and remember... be discrete!
