Description 

This concentration of boulders are located on a hillside on the north side of Lynn Woods. They are typically easy to find and just down the trail from the Weetamoo area boulders. Several​ boulders in this area are located directly off the red blazed trail.

Getting There 

From the Ballpark lot, head right to the north side of the pond. Follow the wide trail for about 10 minutes till you can finally cut left on a red blazed trail. Follow this path for another 10-15 minutes to find the boulders. You will cross two wooden foot bridges and several intersections along the way. Simply stay on the red trail and you will be fine.

Any info on the super proud, gently overhanging fist crack that's visible from the trail, I think right before the Overlook crag proper?

Dan - Do you mean this one? The story is that it is a beautiful splitter hand/fist crack! It's been a long time, but I did this and remember deep jams. Not a lot of boulderers like cracks, so blocks like this get passed on a lot. I seek them out!
