Awesome area off the housatonic range trail north of new milford. High quality gneiss boulders in an awesome setting with subtle difficult lines. Feels similar to boulder natural area of pawtuckaway.

The Prius Crowd V3 6A  CT : CT Bouldering : Straits Rock
Sit Start on Slopers or horizontal down low and work the aręte up and left to the top out on good Slopers, pinches and horizontals with a heel hook in there too. Last two moves were dynamic for me at least and felt impossible at first. Problem took me three solid days this spring to complete. Many more good subtle problems out here in the v3 to v8 range. No easy problems around really though. Beautiful place to camp out too.Heres a video of the send. youtu.be/A5BoC2jeEZU...[more]   Browse More Classics in CT
