Description

This small, 15 foot, West-facing, puddingstone cliff is located West of Boston along Hwy 9/Bolyston St. on the south side of the road. While it is not much for to look at, it can provide a good bouldering or TR session. It can be wonderful on a crisp spring or fall day. It is mostly overhanging. As you can tell from the names, it is probably best not to fall off these routes if bouldering.

The rock is similar to some of Hammond PondÂ’s puddingstone conglomerate.

Great rock with some really crimpy boulder problems. Bring a few pads and some great spots. Eliminate galore, can make some really hard Vgrades with sit starts. Apr 22, 2014
