DescriptionThis wooded crag makes an excellent winter crag. It is south facing and gets sun for most of the afternoon. The summit offers pleasant views of the eastern side of the ridge. In the summertime, there are persistent mosquitoes, and the right side of the cliff weeps.
Getting ThereFollow the Metacomet trail from Pinnacle or from Route 6. The last time I visited there was a climber's trail starting from the neighborhood west of the crag.
Find the power lines on Forest Hills Dr. Follow the lines south for about 1/4 mile and look for a trail on the left. If you do not find a trail on the left, head left until you find either a quad trail on the metacomet. The quad trail can be followed, But eventually you will need to just head uphill. When you find the Metacomet, follow it north towards the crag. If you hit Greenwall, you have gone too far.
