Description

This granite wall arguably offers the best toproping in eastern MA. There is one true classic (Zipper), several excellent slab climbs, and some decent crack climbs. All the routes have bolted toprope anchors.

Though there a few bolted lines here and there, please avoid bolting established lines. There is a long history of climbing in this area, and if you look closely, you will find the scars of the bolts wars.

Getting There

From the main parking area, follow the obvious trail along Route 128 until it turns sharply uphill at the Pink Floyd Wall. Make a right and continue up to the main area.

This is popular hiking/dog walking trail, and there is a nice view of Cape Ann from the top of what is known as Hardy Mountain.
