The Lower Cliff located below and west (climber's left) of Main Slab. It is about 40 ft. tall. This area has a couple of okay routes but is very rarely climbed, probably because it is blocky, terraced and has plenty of vegetation. Give it a try if you're in the mood for something different.

Getting There 

From midway up the access trail on the left side of the Main Slab, wander 20 yards down towards the highway to the top of the Lower Cliff. You can rappel to the bottom or scramble down climber's left.

Climbing Season

For the Western Highlands area.

Follow the path of least resistance (or most interest). Easiest to start left. Go up the two thin, pocketed cracks on the right if you want to spice things up....[more]   Browse More Classics in Connecticut
