Judges Cave

Connecticut > CT Bouldering > W Rock SP


Nice place to go hit once or twice a year. Good landings, solid rock and plenty of variations besides the regulars.

Getting There

In the winter you have to walk up the road that heads to the summit of West Rock Park. When the road splits up top, head to the right. About 15 minutes from the car. In the warmer months you can drive right to it.

[Hide Comment] I climbed the face to the right of "Maybe Not" today. I'm curious -- has anyone climbed this before? It felt about V4 (though hard to tell, could be a 3 or a 5) and has thin moves high off the deck. I've tentatively added this as "The Death Warrant" (which fits the history of this area and the danger of the climb), though I'd be curious to know if someone has done it already! I didn't use the right arete (which felt about V1 by itself), just the face.

If no one has done it, I encourage CT climbers to check it out -- it's a beautiful and scary line.

[Hide Comment] Updating the geo-location for this area as the current spot is at least 2 miles away from the actual location... If the road is closed, use GPS to find West Rock Playground and hike about 15-20 minutes along the Northwest side of the rock face. The trail will lead you straight to Judge's Cave. Nov 3, 2017
