This is a nice, small, slabby, lonely granite block. It has nothing too crazy. Rock quality is very good though.

Getting There 

Take Fessenden Hill Rd. until you reach the gate and gravel parking lot. Park and walk down the gravel road past the gate. The block is on the left of the trail quite a ways down, maybe a mile. You can't miss it. It's right off the road. The approach is way shorter if you park at the cul-de-sac at the end of W. Hill Rd. in New Hampshire.

Start with both hands on nice jugs, located on top of the large flake. This might be quite the reach for a shorter climber. The flake sounds hollow, but don't be scared to put some weight on it. Use a good right foot to press out left, and either climb to the top statically or make a sweet dyno move!...[more]   Browse More Classics in Massachusetts
