Description 

This is an area of West Gloucester comparable to Redrocks minus the glory of the main wall. There is a plethora of boulders (Dike's Pond area) throughout the wood here and about half a dozen awesome crags which offer both slab and crack climbing.

Getting There 

Follow New Way Lane to the green gate. Make sure you do not park blocking the gate, probably a two car maximum here. Follow the trail until the first fork, take a right. At the next intersection, take a left. At the third intersection, you will see a sign for the summit, take that right. You will shortly see crags starting on your right.

Climbing Season

For the Cape Ann area.

Young Adult Friction V1 5  MA : Cape Ann : ... : Crotch Slab
This heads up to the obvious feature in the middle of the slab just right of the steep, high part at the left end of the slab. Smear up on gentle scoops and bulges including the large, shallow dish. There are no hand holds to be found. It is a really great, pure fiction climb up an ultra clean slab. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in MA
