Description

I have searched through this area for many years and had mostly written it off as being a bunch of mossy, chossy slabs. My recent purchase of a mountain bike has allowed for a much more thorough search and has revealed some high quality boulders and some potential quality trad routes. According to the Massachusetts DCR website, this is technically part of the Gilbert Hills State Forest, but for most recreational users, it is known as the Wrentham State Forest.

Getting There

Parking is available at several points on Taunton Street, including the main lot. Some of the rock is up to a mile hike from the parking but should be worth the effort.

I did some exploring here to check out Half of Doom and some other things. I "found" a cliff (WF06) that is about 60-70 feet tall with at least a dozen or so routes that look to be protected. As is typical around here, you would likely need a bit of cleaning but not as bad as some of the other cliffs in the park. I mapped and documented what I "found". Oct 20, 2017
It's in a small section near the mall. It looks way safer and not as hard in the pic than it is in person. Definitely needs to be cleaned via rappel. I have found a couple pedestal boulders, a big arrowheadish-shaped boulder somewhat close to 1a and a couple others in some odd sections. I have some pics, will track them down. Nov 27, 2013

I have found a few interesting things here in some of the more lesser known areas of the park. See below. Viscious landing . . . . Nov 27, 2013

I will be adding more to this area soon. Post up if you have done any climbing here. Nov 27, 2013
