This is a decent enough, vertical wall a couple drips including a main one that forms well. The wall is dank and scrappy enough that it won't really interest boulderers. Underneath the moss, there are many decent edges for mixed bouldering. There also a thin seam that can be climbed with intricate tool work. The landing is even pretty good. It is maybe 15' at its highest.

Getting There 

This is in the fire tower area along Southern Ave in Essex (but it's also part of the same continuous wooded area as Redrock, Down Under, etc.). Access via the Fire Tower is questionable as there are no trespassing signs all over that side of Southern Ave. You can can walk in via Aggasiz Rock though.

There are other little walls out there (including one slab that is actually pretty big but easy) and some bouldering worth exploring.
