This is a great cliff that is virtually unknown to most MA climbers. The rock quality is great. There are long 100 foot routes. Access is the issue. You have a bit of a hike unless someone knows a better way in.

Getting There 

It is in Monson, MA. Take exit 8, the Palmer exit off Rte 90 to Rte 32 south. I've heard that there is access off Bunyan Road, but don't take this as fact. Ask permission to cross anyone's land. You may be able to go in the back way to the top of the cliff by going in the hospital grounds and parking where there is a gated dirt road and walk in that way.

A local climber told me about this place several years ago, but I have never made it out there. Is access prohibited, or just difficult/long? Would love to check it out soon.

I'm not sure of the access issues at this time. I've only gone in with Ken Nichols who has a key to the gate off Macomber Road. I haven't been there lately. I heard that you can walk in via Bunyan Road, but you have to cross someone's land, so you have to ask permission.

It's on private property and can not be accessed legally. This area should not have been posted on TMP.

I climbed there with permission of the landowner years ago. Did you ask? There is a pretty well-worn hiking trail across the top, so people obviously access the property. Your local crag?

It has been reported to me that the access from Bunyan Road is not an option. The landowner has been leaving notes on the windshields of people parking there. It has also been reported to me that local climbers regularly park here at a small three car pullout at the trail head. So park at your own risk.

Climbers are now accessing Bunyan from the west side through Macomber Road. It practically goes through somebody's backyard so ask nicely before you go there. Macomber Road is off Upper Palmer Road. Park and find an indistinct trail to the top of the cliff.
