Description 

This wall is the largest at Bald Rock and is located behind (North) of the Colossus Boulder. This wall has a 60 deg overhang (low to ground) on the right side while the face is slightly off angled and broken by large diagonal cracks. Though easy looking, this cliff offers up some good difficult moderate climbs.

The wall is named after Ted Quintin, Grampa Grunt, who passed away this morning, 09/21/2012. He is a dear friend who will be missed by the many lucky folks who had the pleasure to visit his famous ski lodge, Grampa Grunts Lodge, located a close distance from the slopes of Jay Peak. Ted, you will be greatly missed by all...

Getting There 

Hike up the gully on the right side of the Colossus Boulder or hike around to the left and then uphill. You will see the Sympaug Wall directly in front of you with a nice clearing at the base for all your hang out needs. . .

This route is really great and offers much more then it appears to from the ground. The route starts to the right of the large pine tree midway up the cliff, on the overhanging left side. Start matching on a great in-cut flake and bust a move up to the horizontal. Get your feet up and gain the large diagonal crack. At the trunk of the broken Mountain Laurel there is a small crack leading up and left. Follow this crack for a few moves and then reach up and right to two more cracks with minimal ho...[more]   Browse More Classics in Connecticut
