The cliffs at the Right Knee face west, making them cool in the mornings and warm late in the day. There is an abundance of short easy routes here along with some decent bouldering. Toprope anchoring possibilities are very good.

Rock is typical Connecticut traprock but seems more abrasive than at Ragged or Pinnacle

Getting There 

The White Trail runs along the top of the cliff while the Red Circle runs along the bottom of the talus. There is an unmarked trail that branches from the Red Circle at the north end and runs closer to the cliff.

Park on Chestnut Lane and follow the Orange trail to the White trail. Or, if parking is available, follow the Red Circle trail north from Mt. Carmel Ave and Ridge Road
