Nestled in the woods off the east side of Route 73 (across from Chapel Pond) is a great, little crag with several quality routes.
Just north of Chapel Pond on Route 73, is a guardrail with a steep bank right behind it. Park at the south end of the guardrail where the shoulder widens up to fit a couple of cars. Walk north along the guardrail until you see a small trail that starts on the other side of the guardrail and goes up the bank and over. Follow this trail for roughly 5 minutes, crossing some marshy areas on downed trees and limbs. The trail will deposit you at the center of the cliff with a nice 5.7 handcrack named "Gob Hoblin" right in front of you.
