Description 

This is a wall a few hundred feet east of the Roadside Cliff. The rock is all super hard and nothing like the granite that surrounds it. From far away (and in the pictures) the rock doesn't look great, but it's really accessible and worth a go. On the left side of the wall you will see "Mt. Spickett" written.

There is probably room to put in a couple harder lines on the faces, but what is included here are only the more obvious problems. (I named it this because it's literally written on the wall, but I definitely wasn't the first to climb it. So if there's already a name, let me know.)

Getting There 

From the parking area: walk along the Ox Trail for 5 minutes, and it should be visible from the trail.

From Roadside Cliff: walk about 50 yards east (climber's left), and go to the lower wall.

It is just below S30 on the Caltopo map.

Stand Start on the horizontal crack, move to a left hand pinch, and use sparse face holds to get to the jug at about 12 feet. Finish up right of the big block.It seems like pretty unique rock for Lynn Woods and was dirty to the point where I thought it probably hadn't been climbed before, but please correct me if it has been....[more]   Browse More Classics in Massachusetts
