The Overlook Rock Climbing
To the NW of The Playground, this is a small, less-significant crag in the Rattlesnake Rocks area. It seems almost ignorable. It is a scattered collection of rocks. Nonetheless, it is listed here for completions sake. There is a roof here that may or may not have been climbed yet.

Featured Route For The Overlook
Practice Slab 5.4 4a 12 IV 10 VD 3c MA
: Rattlesnake Rocks
: The Overlook
Climb up the talus to a low-angle slab to the right of the distinguishable Cape Eternity Roof. Follow the finger crack that that tends to the right (crux) and then upward. A more difficult (5.7) start begins at the lower, steep wall; this joins the upward-leading section of the (somewhat) continuous crack. This route has a fun horizontal step or two (at the bottom of the slabby face) with a tiny bit of exposure over a small drop. Why can't this route be longer?...[more] Browse More Classics in MA
