This boulder sits just off the trail, at the far edge of the Fenway area and the beginning of the Mt. Spickett area. Generally shady, the boulder is framed by trees and large blocks sit imposingly in the fall zone. The boulder has a sharp-edged crack that runs the length of its south face - it begs to be climbed. You'll want lots of pads, an active spotter, or strong fingers.

Getting There 

F14 on caltopo map

Approach is about 10 minutes from the parking lot. Head along the outfield fence of the softball field towards the woods. Head up the steep slope and follow the trail all the way through the Fenway area. When you come to a fork in the trail, take a left. The boulder will be on the left side of the trail just as it begins to wind its way uphill towards Mt. Spickett.

Start far right on the ledge that sits under the roof. Make your way left on sharp edges and finger cracks. Follow the crack as it ascends across the boulder. The feet are sparse! The crux comes about halfway through the problem, as you cling to sharp edges and try to find feet to complete the traverse. Keep climbing left until a finger crack reveals itself just above you, making a topout possible.The descent is easy, a small hop off the back of the boulder....[more]   Browse More Classics in Massachusetts
