Boulder Brook "Fairy Rock".


Boulder Brook is a small place to boulder behind the Bates Elementary School in Wellesley. It's a good place for beginners to start bouldering, but it also has some challenging routes for more advanced climbers. Boulder Brook is never crowded and is under big trees, so it is well-shaded. The rock quality is great.

Getting There 

You get there by going into the Bates Elementary School parking lot and walking down past the baseball fields until you see a wooden sign that says "Boulder Brook Reservation." You have to walk straight down a little path for 5 minutes until you get in the tree line. Then you will take a right until you see boulders.

Wumbo Jumbo is a route that is on the back side of the boulder. It starts off with a left hand on a side cling and right hand on a very small crimp. The bottom is the crux but it gets easier after the small jug half way up....[more]   Browse More Classics in Massachusetts
