The cliff is located on commercial private property and climbing is not officially allowed however, climbers have been climbing here since the late 70's. Please carpool if possible because parking is minimal at best. Due to the short approach, locals tend to party at the crag leaving smashed beer bottles and garbage behind. Please help by taking a little extra garbage out on your visit. Any help is greatly appreciated by the RMF and all climbers alike. The RMF and others have been working for decades with the land owners on proper access so please be respectful of the property as well as adjacent land owners as they will be critical in any future deal that may materialize.
The areas from climber's left to right are:
1. Lone Pine
2. Emerald City Slab
3. A-Frame Wall
4. Dream Weaver Wall
5. Right Wing Wall
6. Entertainer Wall
7. Cracked Wall
There are access trails on the left and right side of the crag.
From Hartford: Take I-84 west to exit 33, Route 72. Turn right at the end of the ramp onto New Britain Ave. Go .2 mile, and make a left at the light (at VW car dealership) onto Metacomet Road.
Once on Metacomet Rd: Go about a mile until road turns sharp left and you see a pond on the left. The trailhead is on the right at the curve. Parking is a little farther up the road, but avoid the NO PARKING signs. Take the dirt jeep trail into the woods. After about 100 yards, turn right at the big cement blocks onto a climber's trail which leads to the base of the cliffs.
