Description [Edit]

This is the large expanse of little-trodden land west of Redrocks. It begins from roughly the eastern shore of Haskell Pond and continues until Southern Ave in Essex. As such, it abuts Agassiz Rocks and the 128 Boulder on one corner and the Pipeline Boulders and Redrock (including the satellite areas) on the other.

The large area contains several good-sized blocks, many slabby outcrops, and several small groups of boulders. Given the topography and the dense woodland, these can be difficult to locate and tend to be quite dispersed. There is evidence of previous bouldering and undoubtedly undiscovered blocks.

This area is wilder than Redrock. Beyond the pond, the area is largely the domain of mountainbikers, off-roaders, and hunters. Alcohol and guns occasionally mix in here, and it is likely that not all of the hunting occurs within official season. Also, unlike Redrocks, much of the land on the western side is in Essex, and some of it may be on private property. For the most part, however, the boulderer intrepid enough to venture out here will likely be very much alone.

Getting There [Edit]

Funnily enough, there is no easy way in here short of hiking in from the Redrocks parking lot. Forest Lane has a parking ban. The paths in Aggasiz Rocks do not link up with any of the other paths. The Firetower access point (like the way 128 Boulder) all involve private property with posted "No Trespassing" signs.
