This a collection of three blocks of different sizes near the path pretty deep in the woods. The main attraction here is the large boulder that looks like the head of an anvil. It is certainly cool looking but lacks great problems. There used to be a pretty curtain of vines that came down form the top of this boulder, but someone has recently pulled this off.

Getting There 

This is the simplest way: walk all the way around Haskell Pond from the east. Pass through the rock barrier and continue for maybe half a mile. With the leaves down, the rocks are visible on your left several hundred yards past the Hanging Boulder. If you reach the open area with the trash in it, you've gone a bit too far.

Around the back of the large boulder there is a sheer crimpy face. Stand start the face on the right and work up and left to the good horizontal crack on the upper left. Traverse the crack to the topout. I stuck to the face and avoiding using holds on the top. Feeling around up there might drop the grade....[more]   Browse More Classics in Massachusetts
