Todd Hollow Walls
Park at the corner  of Todd Hollow Road and Keegan Road in Terryville, CT.  Walk up the closed  road, turn left on Blue Trail.Walk up hill about 15 minutes. A dirt road crosses the trail. Turn left on the dirt road.  A 100 feet away is the Todd Hollow Cracked Wall, 20 feet high, 60 feet long. It is overhanging too. Routes vary from 5.3 to 5.10.  Return to the trail, the trail turns left up a short steep section, then downhill about 6 feet. When the trail goes uphill again, in about a minute, turn left again.  The Todd Hollow Smooth wall is 20 feet away. This is split by a horizontal crack.  It is 20 feet high, and 50 feet long.  Routes vary from 5.3 to 5,10 again.   Both of these walls have been cleaned and climbed by Connecticut Climbers and Mountaineers since 2012.  We have not put names or numbers on the lines.  
I refer to these and Athena Rock as Dog Climbs.  I discovered these areas while following the pack, Athena, Tracker and Reilly, through the woods.

hAHA!  - yeah don't speed in Ct
a fair warning! don't double dare the state boyz in Ct. The new "Interceptor" cars, that the Police are stalking with, are seriously fast.

 SORRY, I WAS SO UNCLEAR,  WHAT i MEANT WAS THAT, IF ONE IS GOING TO RECOMMEND NEW OR RE-FOUND CLIMBING ZONES
 - &   WITH ALL THE DRIVING ONE MIGHT BE DOING TO CLIMB,  WHAT ABOUT ROCKS LIKE THESE
SKULLZ ROCK

BOULDERS, TO SMALL CLIFFS;

So is this how we are going to put out the word on where the lost rock is to be found?
