Access Issue: Land Trust property Details
Redding Land Trust owns Great Ledge has a parking lot and trail to the Ledge located on Dayton Rd. Please do not park and bushwack from Newtown Turnpike (Rt. 53) as there is no established trail to this cliff and traveling on Centennial Watershed State Forest property requires you to stay on established trails and carry the following permit: ct.gov/dep/lib/dep/statepar…. RLT does not specifically have a policy on rock climbing at the ledge but should any issues arise they might very well close the property to climbing. If you intend on climbing at Great Ledge please consider a paying the $10 membership fee which can also be considered a tax donation.
Short climb on the left side of the cliff. From the Main Roof, walk left past 5.6 and pretty mossy slab to the large overhanging flakes and cracks. This climb starts on the large flake and goes up the face to a nice horizontal crack to the lip. Used to have one bolt to prevent ground fall. Bolt removed by disgruntled climber who wants to promote ground falls.
Route can take gear low and high however, crux move is now a ground fall since the bolt was removed!
