Description 

This area has a good concentration of problems with a short approach. This area is popular with first time visitors to the Lynn Woods.

Getting There 

This is located on the right side (North side) of Walden pond from the main parking lot. Leave the lot and head across a small field onto a wide path (Ox Pasture Trail). Hike down this path for about 10 minutes. You will quickly begin to see a small set of cliffs on your right. When you reach a large boulder with a lot of broken glass on the right side of Ox Pasture Trail, you have found the area. Trails that lead off to the right just before and after the large boulder will take you to the boulders in this area.

What's the deal with the huge block right next to the anvil boulder? It absolutely looks like some worthy climbing there.

Dan,
The lines are there, go for them. They have all been climbed in the past with the most obvious line up the flat crimp face being the best. Bring a few pads and maybe a spotter for the rocks behind you.

While exploring the cliffs in this area last weekend, we found two bolted sport routes. It also looked like there might be the potential for top roping. Does anyone know anything about this?

Jesse - The roadside crag has a bolted route. While it is unclear who bolted this route, it may have been Bob Parrot who was one of the pioneer Lynn Woods climbers. Please do not place new bolts at this time. If you find more, please let me know. Also, toproping is indeed something that is the safe way to climb many of these cliffs/boulders.
