This is a cool, old quarry pit. Granite from here was used to build a church and the post office in Worcester. There's not a whole lot to offer here. It is usually wet. There are one or two routes in the back of the quarry where's there's the only tallish wall.

Getting There 

Go past the main wall.

It seems like all the crux moves are at the top... start on crimps, and move through a series of crimps to gain the lip. Use the block at the top to pull over the lip. The route always seems to be wet but may dry out in summer....[more]   Browse More Classics in Massachusetts
