Description

This is a small, shaded crag with a few nice routes. It is 25 feet high at it tallest point with a variety of face climbs and some interesting features. The crag is good as an after work stop due to its short approach and proximity to route 495.

Getting There

It is on the Powder House trail right behind Bolton town hall. Park by the shipping container, and walk 2 minutes up the hill on the yellow blazed trail. You can't miss it.

Good little crag to have in the neighborhood. Decent face climbing on small, positive edges. If you visit the crag, try to keep a low profile, as the Powder House on top of the cliff is a historical landmark for the town. Town Hall is also right at the bottom of the hill. I have never been bothered here except by the occasional MTB rider bombing down the hill near the cliff. Aug 26, 2016
