DescriptionSecluded 30'-40' Cliff in the middle of the Fremont Rd Sandown Town Forest. Mostly toprope and some bouldering.
Bring Lots of Webbing/Static rope as the solid trees for anchors are 15-30 ft away from the edge.
As of right now there are no named routes but it looks like there could be a dozen or so solid climbs from 5.6 to 5.11 as well as some boulder problems. There's a real cool variety of rock, with neat textures and cool overhangs. Currently there is a lot of veggetation on the rock and some broken glass at the bottom soon to be cleaned up.
Getting ThereFrom NH 121A in Sandown, NH, Turn on to Fremont Rd at the Store in the Center of Town. 1 Mile down the road on the right is the Town Forest Parking Lot.
About a 15 Minute Rolling hike to the crag.Take the Red/Purple Trail. At the Fork stay right to stay on the purple trail and continue to stay right when the purple trail loop splits. The trail will come to a very small overlooking clearing at the top of the crag with some sparse, but good trees for TR anchors. You can walk to the base of the cliff on either side.
