DescriptionShady, in the woods, fairly clean solid rock. About 50 ft high. Several obvious easyer leads. Other harder face routes and some very desperate looking overhanging walls. At least two whorthwile areas here. The rock is simillar to that at Chatfield Hollow, although much more textured.
Getting ThereTrailhead is the tunxis trail off of greer road in burlington ct. Park at the land preserve gravel pull off by the pond. . Trail starts on pond side of road. follow trail next to pond. The hike in is about half hour to the first crag. Follow blue blazed trail right over the top of it. I'll call this the chimney cliff,as it has obvious chimney system in the center. The other crag is another ten minuits or so. Cross the stream at the remnants of the old dam follow blue trail a couple hundred yards further. Ravens roost can be seen in the woods off to the right if you look carefully.
