An awesomely featured gneiss wall with crazy huecos and pinches in a beautiful and extremely remote location. There are some boulders on your left on the walk in but the wall is the most special.

Getting There 

Drive about 2 miles past the balance rock headed north. You're looking for a small unmarked road branching off right. Just after a brush pile and 100 yards before a yellow gate. Park If your in a car or drive to the rough roads end (1/3 mile) if you've got a 4x4. From here follow the old faint road down hill along the swamp till it
Totally ends . From here follow the faint foot path across a couple slough bottoms and roughly easy for about 5 minutes on foot. You're looking for an abrupt knob about 50 ft tall. The wall is hidden by mt laurel but faces south and gets a lot of sun. Total approach from the 156 .... 8-9 minutes by car and 10 minutes by foot.

This is a scary, difficult to link problem. Nine days of work ,a bloody nose and a sprained ankle. Hard bouldery sequence down low followed by some easy stuff in the middle followed by another boulder problem 20 feet off the deck. SDS on the insane pinch/rail in lowest Hueco. The line links the two big huecos then goes Left a little to a mantle then back right and tips out at Highest point. Awesome holds....[more]   Browse More Classics in Connecticut
