These are beautiful rocks right on the ocean. The rock quality is good, not soft or loose. It varies from juggy, jagged holds up away from the water to slopers on the wet side. The climbs are short, but there are multiple traverse possibilities.

Getting There 

Park along Ocean avenue and walk down Castle Rock Lane. Most of the climbs are down the stone stairs, some are up on the main rock.

Walk past ...Take The Ride, and you will see a crack line on the rock next to a dihedral corner. Using this corner is not the line and makes it easier. Follow the crack and the crimps....[more]   Browse More Classics in Massachusetts

Hey everyone,

This place is quite under-developed. If that is the case, I have three new routes to post from last night including a crack climb. If anyone has any other beta that is unavailable, please post - otherwise these seem like first ascents which I can post routes, grades, locations, beta, and photos.
