Description 

This is one of my favorite blocks on Cape Ann. There is a little bit of everything here and all just feet from your car. The 128 Boulder also most likely has the highest density of problems for anyone boulder on Cape Ann.

This is the home of Satan and his awesome problems. Be warned though, if playing with Satan, you'll need a few pads and good spotters.

Getting There 

Driving south bound on 128, this block is right off of the shoulder between the West Glouster exit and the Essex exit. As soon as you see the half mile marker to the Essex, exit pull over the block is right there. You can either park on the side of 128 directly in front of the block, or park in the back of the Manchester Athletic. PLEASE, NO MORE THAN TWO CARS. It only one block, so if folks are already there, you can go up the road to any other area. Preserve access and park as far off the highway as possible.
