Description

This is a nice, little area in Lawrence, which is nearly to the New Hampshire line (I thought it was in Andover), with short routes of low end difficulty. The park is 80 acres and belongs to the city. The rock is fairly rough with buckets galore. Consider long slings and a sturdy rope for climbing here. Anchors require pro. Some will just boulder here. Something was written about supposedly rock to 100 feet here. Addendum: I never found anything bigger than 30 feet.

The crags from North to South are First Impressions, Desperado, Inner Walls, Building Blocks, Petroleum Based Buttress, FK Face, City Dump, City Park, Remnants. Above City Park is a small boulder.

Apparently, below The Building Blocks area is a new bouldering area.

Getting There

To get there from Boston, go North on I-93, go East on I-495 to exit 42A. Go South on Hwy 114 for 0.4 mi. Paaark on the West side. Go South away from the North Andover shopping mall. Take a left (East) and follow a dirt road. The first crag you will reach is First Impressions.
