This is a small area of cliff band and boulders right near the Chatfield entrance parking. The cliffs face west and they are right near a little swamp. The rock quality ranges from perfect to flakey, and there is a lot of moss so bring a nylon brush.

Getting There 

Walk into the park right past the entrance guard shack and then take an immediate right on to a trail through a pine grove, take another right on to a trail and follow this towards Route 80. When you come to a broken bridge cross a small stream and the cliffs are immediately on the other side

A really good route. Start sitting on a cool side pull, grab a crimp and make a big move to a massive jug rail. Make fun moves to the top....[more]   Browse More Classics in Connecticut

Cricket - Do you climb a lot of plastic?

I thought the ratings were sandbag. Sorry, that's my opinion. I thought many of the features of the site were to aid people in finding places to climb, and getting an idea what to expect . I didn't say the routes were bad.
I know I'm not legitimate enough to post here, so sorry to offend the establishment.

Those Killingworth climbers are sandbaggers and they dont even know it. That of course is why Mtn Proj is so nice, everyone can rate the climb and it averages the ratings. You might only be the 2nd or 3rd person to try these so after a while the ratings change. look at Subline (10d) at the main cliff for example, I believe the Mtn Proj rating is around 11b or so.

yo cricket, you're correct in thinking a hold has broken ;) it has yet to be done since then. It's true that you may be the 3rd-4th person to try these routes though, so no hard feelings if the grades are off.

Whoa hey Cricket - It was an honest question, not meant to demean you at all man. I find when I climb a lot indoors outside stuff usually seems at least a grade harder. Relax man... the problems are like other said new.
