A low traverse that travels across a long 20-foot overhanging boulder. The crux is located in the center of the route with a lunge to a high right-hand hold. Good quality holds with minimal risk. This problem really lives up to its name!


Located off of Beaver Dam Trail in Old Saybrook, CT. Park at the circle at the end of the street and follow the trail for about 1/4 of a mile. When you reach an incline in the trail with a rock formation to your right, turn left and bushwhack for about 300 feet until you come to the traverse. The start is located to the far left on the arete. Traverse to your right along the slab until you come to the corner where you top out.

Hi Jonathan... All the information you're asking for is located in the directions. I think you need to re-read the Location. Feb 27, 2017
I'd like to check this out, but it's impossible based on the description. What road do you park on? Is it the Preserve or Town Park? What color is the trail? Am I missing some information on the site? Feb 25, 2017
