DescriptionNot much of a destination on it's own it does make for an excellent side crag if you've topped out the 82 crag and you're looking for something stiff.
Perched tightly in the wooded hillside above the 82 Crag, the sunny Chapel Crag hosts two short sport routes reminiscent of routes at The New Wave Wall at Rumney. This steep, powerful, and sustained duo, FA'ed by Dave Vuono in 2008, are definitely worth the 15 minute bushwhack past the main faces of the 82 Crag.
Getting ThereUse the same directions as for the 82 Crag. Once at the 82, follow the main trail right along the base of the big wall section of the crag, passing the 4th class scramble to the Steep Wall. Continue uphill, weaving your way through a short, mossy ledge system, and on up through the steep woods. It is possible to see the cliff from the top of the short ledge system in the late Fall, however, you won't be so lucky in the spring/summer with leaves on the trees.
It's also possible, and quite convenient, to simply hike to this cliff after topping out any of the Main Face routes that reach the top of the cliff. Simply hike straight back, trending slightly to the right, for about 5 minutes.
