This is a large tract of land contiguous with Dogtown but located further east in Rockport. Like Dogtown, there is a ton or rock in here, but very little of it is worthy of bouldering. That said, there a few big boulders and few quality problems scattered here and there.

Getting There 

Park at the small pullout near the water tower on the top of Summit Ave. in Rockport. Park at the Water Tower, and follow the gated dirt road past the tower and into the woods.

Featured Route For Pool Hill Forest
Rock Climbing Photo: Pool Hill Arete.

The Pool Hill Arete V1-2 5  Massachusetts : Cape Ann : ... : Shark Fin Boulder
Climb the perfect arete across the slightly overhanging face with crappy feet, and top out at the highpoint. If this were in a better area and a bit harder, it would be an absolute classic. As such, it's pretty sweet at the grade....[more]   Browse More Classics in Massachusetts
