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.
Directly to the left of the main roof is a large dihedral/corner. Move up and left in 5.2 dihedral (route starts before downhill to mossy green slab), once over the first hump, move up and right on good holds or climb crack in dihedral. At the roof move left 3-4' to lip/roof. Either pull the lip straight up and right on big flake or move left and up the crack in the dihedral. Easy crack or face climbing to the top.
