Description Suggest change

This is a large expansive area that extends from the far reaches of the Cavalry Boulder field, aka the Gymnasium to the Mt. Jocobs Boulders out to Concord Street all the way to the Bray Street mini-crag. This area offers a great amount of potential for future lines on block, rock, and maybe ice.

Getting There Suggest change

Drive down Bray St. You can either enter from the parking lot at the Bray St. Crag or from the green gate up the road which will take you directly to the Great Dome. All access points and parking locations are shown on the Essex County Greenbelt's map of the area.
