This area is near the big rock quarry, if you continue on the green trail past the homeless camp gully, past the selectmen stones, through the marsh, right at the road and left on the second trail across the powerlines. Following this trail will take you through the whole gully and past the quarry and eventually on to the erratic plane area. There are a few sick sick sick overhanging problems, a couple caves, and a big wet 60 foot wall with a classic offwidth in it.

Getting There 

Take green trail past the fern gully, past the lonely boulder, past homeless camp gully, past selectmen stones, across marsh, right at the right away and left under thw power lines at first blazed trail immediately after the dirt road that goes left under the same power lines.
