Esty Lane Boulders Rock Climbing
These are basically three boulders resting against each other. There really isn't any other rock up there, which is cool. The boulders are very aesthetic and the setting is very unique. It is definitely a cool place to spend an afternoon.
From Almont, take the dirt road (Esty Lane) all the way to the top of the hill and stop when you see the sweet boulders.
: you can see the boulders from the road. They are about 25 minutes from the pavement, when you know where you are going. Go right at the first fork, continue up some switchbacks, followed by a left at the top of the switchbacks. Drive until you see the boulders.
