Description

Nira Rock Urban Wild is a old, mostly undocumented area in Boston's Jamaica Plain neighborhood. It is managed by a non-profit group called Friends of Nira Rock and is free and open to the public. It is a puddingstone face with a variety of features and textures. There are currently two routes with bolted anchors, and it has the potential for many more routes, both toprope/sport and bouldering. It is an urban park, so beware of broken glass in and around the rocks.

Getting There

From Downtown Boston: take the Green Line to Heath St. Walk southeast on Heath St. Turn right on Schiller St. Turn right onto Minden St. Turn right onto Grotto Glen Rd. At the end of Grotto Glen Rd, follow the paved path to the rocks.

If you are driving there is parking at the end of Glotto Glen Road, or some street parking on Nira Ave.
