Description Suggest change

This is a scenic conservation area with scattered boulders. There's a decent amount of variety here. The Pusherman Wall has techy vertical, the Temple Overhangs has some thuggy climbs, and the Hermit's Cave has a classic roof problem.

Getting There Suggest change

Park at the Mall at Chestnut Hill. Walk north along Hammond Pond Parkway until you see a Boston College Building on the left (formerly Congregation Mishkan Tefila). The entrance to the Webster Conservation Area is on the northern edge of the temple's parking lot.

Do not park at the temple!
