At the end of a neighborhood in Weymouth, Massachusetts (on the south side of Boston) sits a 30 foot tall boulder that has much potential. Here you can find 2 hand crack climbs, easy face climbs, and an airy arete. There is also potential for some bouldering problems here.

House Rock is only 10 minutes south of Quincy Quarries off of Route 3. From I-93 south, merge onto Route 3 south and take exit 16B.

I did a route here with Tim Kemple BITD. T was around 12 and so was the route. Right side of the main face with a hard start.
