Description 

Nice sunny wintertime wall to hit up with problem ranging from V0-V5 so far. Course and well featured rock with some exciting and clean topouts with flat landings. This area is a continuation of the same cliff band that you see on the side of I-95 AKA the interstate homeless camp . As of last fall all of the trees in the picture have been cut down so it looks a bit different.

Tons more to do around here if your hands can handle it.

This climbing area is located in Branford, CT. No known climbing restrictions exist for this area.

Getting There 

Easiest is to park at the very end of Granite Rd in the designated trail head parking lot on the right. From there walk down the trail towards the power lines and head off to the right down the green trail. This will take you to the 2 man made bridges, from here continue on the green trail to the next (3rd)bridge, cross the bridge and cut right through the woods until you reach an old dirt road. Follow the road back to the power lines, turn left and the cliff is about a minute or two down on the edge of another swamp.

Its really close but hidden between two swamps so it takes a bit more time to get there. 10-15 minute approach.

Sit-start with your hands on the obvious jug. Move up into the sidepull seam. Some long reaches and compression moves gets you to the rounded top. There's a few good edges to use to pull over. The top is a little tricky, but not too bad....[more]   Browse More Classics in Connecticut
