Tom Sawyer.


Start on 2 edges moves left following a slopey rail, Big move to the arete and finish up the height of the boulder on slopey holds.


This is on the new bike path near the Hopkinton/Milford line. Park at the new lot for the bike path and walk south towards Milford. This will be on the right just after a side road. It is on the approach to Renaissance Man.

Hey, thanks for posting up some more Milford stuff.

Is this one north or south of 495? I have a hard time finding some of these places.

I'm assuming that the new bike path you mention is the Upper Charles Trail?

North of 495. Also in the vicinity of Renaissance Man.

Can someone give me a better description or maybe even a GPS of this boulder? I assume it's somewhere off of the bike path behind Wendy's. Also with the orientation of 495, east (Vietnam side) or west (Wendy's side) is more clear than north/south.

Not behind Wendy's. It's down 85 towards College Rock about 50 feet from the road on the right. I think if you park at the new parking lot at the end of the bikepath and walk back towards 495, you should see it on your right just above a very small pond.

Behind Tom Sawyer, facing Rte 85, is a boulder with a few fun lines on it.
