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.

This is a really cool slab problem on perfect rock. Start on the main face, and get thin feet down low and whatever works for hands. Once established on main face, work over to arete where you will encounter a hold or two. Continue up using a combination of the arete for hands and the main face for feet until you can reach the only decent hold at the top. This is a perfect combination of arete and slab problem that could only be improved by being longer. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in Massachusetts
