DescriptionBetween the cliffs of The Meadows and the road are shorter ledges and a few boulders with lots of potential for bouldering. It has been climbed on extensively over the years, being so close to the parking lot, but sporadically, probably do to the "ouchy" nature of the holds. The name "Meat Grinder" is apt!. If a few fishhook spines don't scare you off, you can find steep climbing on pockets and flakes.
The most popular spot is The Meat Grinder Wall, that gives the area its name; an overhanging wall of pockets with a nice flat landing, just out from the No Money Down section of cliff. The jumble of ledge and stacked boulders continues to the right towards the trail leading up to Holderness Corner
Hell's Kitchen includes the lower bouldering closer to the big parking lot, around the start of the trail to the Holderness Corner area; a low boulder on the right, next to the lot and a wall up and to the left (continue straight where the trail turns right)
Getting ThereFrom the main parking lot, take the path from the far left side (when viewing the cliffs) that leads to the Holderness School Corner of the Meadows area. Everything is to the left of this trail. The left side (The Meat Grinder Wall) can also be reached via the trail from the road up to the No Money Down area. When going up and down to the road/parking, be sure to use one of these trails only and not break your own trail down the steep hillside directly to the road please.
