West Side of Slugs and Crickets Block


This interesting block is located on top of the ridge leading south off Bald Rock peak. The boulder is about 8 ft tall and about 20 feel long. It consists of a some large grain gneiss and fine grained schist on the other. The name comes from the cleaning of a large flake that had 7 large slugs and 7 large crickets hiding behind it.

Getting There 

Hike in along the blue blazed trail and just before Bald Rock hike 50 ft up hill on your left.

Press it out and bump your left hand up along a series of crimpers. Once you're established off the ground fire up and out left to a sloper a the lip. Reachy moves. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in Connecticut
