A nice crag in Central District of SNP.

Possible to top rope, trad or free solo.

If top roping make sure to bring plenty of webbing and/or static cord d/t anchors being a toss up.

around Little Stony Man and All off-trail areas on Little Stony Man
located south of a line placed 28.3 yards
(35 meters) north of the Chute Trail (Figure

boulders on the northernmost end of Little
Stony Man cliffs between the A.T. and
Passamaquoddy Trail are also closed.
