Description

The rock type is conglomerate puddingstone, similar in texture to the rest of Hammond Pond. Expect the occasional dogwalker or tottering octogenarian, but other climbers are a rare sight.

Getting There

From the parking lot near the Alcove, walk along the pond towards the main toproping wall. Just before you reach the wall, turn left and hike up a somewhat steep hill. This will take you into a corridor, with trees and scattered boulders on either side. Glass House is the prominent boulder on the left side of the corridor.

It is great these boulders are getting logged. Claiming a FA on anything at Hammond Pond is silly. This boulder was climbed looooong ago. Probably as a warm up. Thanks for logging it though! Apr 12, 2017
