Description

A new area has been found and recently (2015) has seen some development. It is about 5 minutes hike west of the main trail and consists of a small ledge about 20' tall at its highest and a long boulder with a great traverse and a potentially harder project up an overhanging prow. The ledge has a bunch of easier cracks and potential for probably a few harder lines.

This quiet, out of the way spot faces west, so gets afternoon sun, seems to dry quickly and has good quality rock with generally flat landings.

For now this can include the various scattered problems between the Trailside Wall and Fat and Happy.

Getting There

It is about a 12 min hike from rt 165, 6 minutes off trail. Hike the white blaze Mt Tom Trail south from 165 ~ 5-6 minutes until you pass along the top of the Trailside Wall (Pineline etc.) . Just after the southern end of that ledge, leave the trail to the right (west) and head a couple hundred feet towards a large clump of rock (the Blair Bldr.)Pass around its left side and continue past another broken ledge with some very marginal little caves and then a ledge about 25' tall (not much real bouldering there) Don't get drawn down the valley on your left (though there is a little potential down there, but hook around right after the 25' wall and the ledge will regrow. Once you see the 14' tall prow you will know you are there.
