Home of the classic climb of the same name, this area has almost a dozen 1-2 pitch climbs from 5.6-5.10c, mostly put up by George Hurley. Almost all of the routes are a mix of traditional and bolt protection.

Getting There 

After passing Beede Falls on Sandwich Notch Rd. look for a sign on the left that says either "no fires" or "don't litter" (I forgot which). There is a faint trail directly across the road. Follow the trail, cross the brook, and you'll find yourself standing below the Brilliant Corners rock climb. Approach takes 2 minutes.
