This is fun crag with interesting problems on fun rock. This crag, while short, is quite wide. It would provide a very challenging girdle traverse for someone. At times, you can lose the sense that you are in a metropolitan area while climbing here. Technique wins over brute strength at this crag.

Apparently, to the left of Posherman Wall is The Cave, a fun 7 foot cave.

Getting There 

This crag is just north of the temple. Again, do not park at the temple. You can walk across the temple parking. Head north on a dirt road. This is the first crag you encounter.

This is a classic climb done by Henry Barber when sticky rubber and crash pads did not exist. It was given a wide range 5.12 grade. Start on crimps at chest height. Make a couple hard deadpoints up and right along a seam to a jug. Then make a couple big moves on big holds to gain the slab topout. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in Massachusetts

Hey everyone,

I believe the route I did is on this wall but not sure. If so, it seems to be a new line which I want to post as a FA; however, I want to make sure it is not already taken. It was done at night so not sure if I am at the right area. It is the huge boulder north of the Temple area which has some graffiti on it. It's short and only 4-5 moves.

Possible new route.



P.S. There was no chalk or sense that anyone had sent this line or tried it.

Certainly post it. Regarding an FA, unless it's V10+, it is extremely likely it's been sent before. Even if was V10+, there is a really good chance it's been sent. Folks have been climbing here since the beginning, the very beginning.
