Description 

This is smaller boulder with a steep side that is often visible from the highway. The rock quality is odd. There are cool veins of quartz and tourmaline crystals running through it. Some of the flakes are suspect, but most of the rock is bulletproof.

This area is frequently hunted in the fall.

Getting There 

The face is visible from the highway a little after the western end of the Haskell Pond. It's in a cluster of smaller boulder along a hillside. You can also get there from The Plow Boulder by following a mountain biker trail most of the way.

Climbing Season
