This lies next west of Hammond Pond and is west of the Upper Walls. It is probably best to park close to the south side of Hammond Pond. From the parking south of Hammond Pond, take the dirt road and go left at the first fork. Continue to the next fork and go left at this fork. It is the next crag.
Climbing Season For the Hammond Pond area.
Weather station 1.7 miles from here

The Vittles Wall is an underappreciated gem that occasionally receives the attention it deserves from curious climbers.
A nice pumpy traverse at the base, several highball climbs from moderate at right to R/X at left. Several key holds flex when pulled upon, so use caution. Some dipshit recently broke off the adorable little tree that had been growing out of it for years. Still a must-visit for me when I'm home in Boston.
