Description Suggest change

Across the street (Rte. 133) from the Redrock area is a remarkably secluded bouldering area with a wide variety of terrain, comprising a wide range of difficulties, beautifully shaded by dying hemlocks.

Getting There Suggest change

Exit 53 (old exit 14) off Route 128. If coming northbound, take a left off the exit ramp and go under the overpass. Park as for Redrock but then load up your pads and head uphill along the road getting weird looks from passing motorists. A few hundred yards from the parking area, cross the street and head into the woods via a faint but visible trail. Take your inventory of the area and start rock climbing.
