Description [Suggest Change]

Holy crap, this is tall, proud, and legal. Stand start, and go up and left. This is crimpy, has a bad landing, and has bolts on top to toprope!

Location [Suggest Change]

It is uphill from Tom Sawyer.

Protection [Suggest Change]

None.

On the Milford/Hopkinton line, Rte 85. There is a small parking space on the south bound side (illegal?) near an obvious clearing. Some small rocks and a dirt bike path. The boulder is across the way, but you kinda skirt around from the left and then slab over to it. I found this thing years ago when living in Hopkinton and realized it was way too hard for me.

Given that there is now easy parking at the bike path, does anyone have better description for finding this thing? Starting from Tom Sawyer, do you cross the marsh at the path right at Tom Sawyer or farther up the bike path? Looks like a great boulder, May 4, 2013

So, from the new parking lot for the bikepath, walk south along the bike path and take the first trail on the left (should be about 1/3 mile from the lot and maybe 200 or 300 feet BEFORE Tom Sawyer). Once past the swampy area on the right, take a trail on the right and continue just above the swampy area until you see this boulder (not sure exactly how far in it is, but it isn't too far).

Update on Joe M's approach: take 2nd left (not first). Jan 7, 2018
