The Pet Slabs

Massachusetts > N Shore > Cape Ann > Redrocks & Vicinity
Access Issue: Covid Guidelines Details


This is shaded area very close to Redrock main wall. In addition to the excellent short finger crack, Gomez the Cat, it offers a handful of short, moderate slab lines. Most of these slabs were thickly covered with moss and required extensive cleaning, but the underlying rock quality is excellent. Given the quailty of the rock, the proximity to the main area, and the moderate nature of the climbing, this is a nice addition to the Redrock climbing scene.

There are also some large cool boulders near here including some off the open rock summit near the top of the these climbs.

Each face has 2 bolts at the top.

Getting There

The Pet Slabs are easily reached from the Redrock main area. Follow the main trail past Rip Van Winkle and continue slightly downhill to a small open area that often contains a fire ring. The pet slabs are just beyond this on the left close to the trail. They are probably 100 yards from the tail end of Redrock.

[Hide Comment] After a few Saturdays of ludicrous levels of scrubbing by me and a buddy, these slabs are now as clean as they are likely to be for awhile. They also have shiny new bolts for TR anchors. Oct 10, 2020
