Description 

This is a hardcore wall. It offers a few really hard free climbs and a few pretty hard aid climbs. The whole wall is overhung. This is on private property, so be respectful and don't harm access.

Getting There 

Follow Atlantic Avenue in West Gloucester until you see this wall on your left. Find a good pulloff and park. Don't be that guy.

Climbing Season

For the Cape Ann area.

Weather station 5.3 miles from here

Anyone know the aid climbs? They kind of all look like hooking...besides the fun, left-trending crack. Fun looking sport climbs, though.

The right hand corner of the quarry reliably ices up during a cold spell. I free climbed the vertical ramp-like feature (pictured) many years ago as a 5.10 lead.
