Mentioned briefly in the Boston Rocks guidebook, Redemption Crag offers some decent climbing for times when Crow Hill Ledge is overcrowded. Approximately 35 feet high at its highest, it has good quality rock. Fixed anchors on two trees were present as of two years ago. I do not know the route history here, but an abundance of chalk on the lower portion of the wall indicate it gets frequent climbers.

Getting There 

Park at Redemption Rock on Route 140 in the dirt parking lot. Take the Mid-State trail across the street. After approximately 5 minutes of hiking, the trail goes over the crest of the cliff. A climber's trail goes to the right, to the bottom of the crag.

Is this cliff on state forest? I went out there one day, and there is a house literally at the bottom of the crag.

As far as I know, it is state land as the Mid-State trail follows the crest of the hill that makes up the crag. It is also mentioned in Boston Rocks, with very limited information.
