DescriptionThis is a nice little area with scattered rock outcrops on the Blue Hills Reservation in Braintree not too far from Quincy Quarries. This was? under Metropolitan District Commission control and now is probably under Department of Conservation and Recreation. Its name comes from actual fauna. Climbing in this area dates back to at least the 1930s. Oddly, Ships Prow here can be a warm place during a cold, sunny stretch. Some of the rocks are quite small. There may be hidden crags/boulders here for exploring types.
Crags here include Burger Boulder, The Shield, Ships Prow, The Playground, & The Overlook.
Apparently, in the easter part of the Blue Hills Reservation area a few more hidden crags: St. Moritz Pond, Clubouse, Chicatawbut Overlook, & Lemon Squeeze.
