Description

This area lies further along the dirt road on top of the embankment perhaps 200 yards from Wampatuck Rd. Head NE along one of the faint trails. It lies in the midst of relatively dense forest and can be hard to spot. On the right side of the crag is a distinctive feature called the Elementary School Roof. This crag seems quite short.
