Location: Massachusetts : Lynn Woods : Weetamoo area : Satellite Boulders

Comments: I think I correctly identified Satellite Boulder 1. I"m having trouble with 2. Take a look at the photos and info for "Sto Away" boulder. Also look at the pic of W12. I think Satellite #2 was Re-logged as Sto Away. What do you think?

Comments: This boulder and the second Satellite boulder may be the same. Can you check? I'll write a note to Old Timer as well.

Comments: Dan,
Keep your ears open for an outdoor comp event in Fall of 2017 (hopefully) that will certainly include this boulder. Eastern MA is starting an LCO. Let me know if you're interested in joining.

Comments: Would love to know where this is. It sounds like the Golden Wall. Double entry?

Comments: NickV, Welcome to Lynn Woods! There have been a few waves of development in Lynn Woods. The access issue is only with the Boxcar Boulder proper. It is near a homeowners yard. It should be noted that the Boxcar boulder itself is in Lynn Woods. The Golden Wall, and likely some of these others are also in Lynn Woods, they may be near a home though. Another thing to keep in mind is that directions are tough here. We're currently expanding/improving on the bouldering map, so stay ... more >>

Comments: Jesse - The roadside crag has a bolted route. While it is unclear who bolted this route it may have been Bob Parrot who was one of the pioneer Lynn Woods climbers. Please do not place new bolts at this time. If you find more, please let me know. Also, top roping is indeed something that is the safe way to climb many of these cliffs/boulders.

Comments: My friends and I worked on Road Kill (before we knew that was the name). We warmed up on this arete. I think it gets done. It is one of those "who knows" problems. Jon and Rich called this boulder The Wedge.

Comments: Would love to know a little more about this "Secret Crag". Is it in the west? east? Are the Access issues being addressed? What type of climbing. Feel free to send me a PM
Thanks,
Tim

Comments: I changed the name to "Back Door Boulders" to prevent confusion with the Entrance Boulders in the Promised Land.

Comments: Thanks for the cool video Adam! It looks like those other climbs you did are in the Black and White Rocks area? Anyway, I'd love to know where they are so they can be logged. The B&W area is sometimes written off, but I know there are a bunch of cool problems around those crags.

If you're looking to climb sometime, I'm always looking to show folks around the Fells and Lynn Woods.

Comments: This is Beanie or Skin Pop. The description says to exit on the traverse, which I suppose is just a variation. The problem is basically the dyno (there is a static way too).

Comments: This is from the 2003 guide. There are no descriptions, just the old topos. My friends and I did this climb at some point in the early 2000s. We thought it was harder than 5.9 if you jump into it (like you are doing in the video). If you traverse into it, it is more like 5.9/10 if I remember correctly. If you haven't tried it, Goofball is just as worth it as Hepatitus.

Comments: Is this the problem that gos up the right arete of the Beach Whale boulder? If it is, I can't tell you how many thousands of ascents that line has seen over the years as people work on Beached Whale.

Comments: Here is a general rule about climbing at Hammond Pond: if it is easier than V10 (even if it is a variation), it was climbed 20+years ago, probably as a warm-up. I'm seeing problems getting logged here as FAs which is just plain silly.

Comments: This is Snort. It is an old school 5.9. It has been a problem for quite some time (20+ years) The FA is unknown, but it's nice to see a video of someone doing it. I don't mean to be a dick, but EVERYTHING at Hammond Pond was climbed before you had diapers on!
