Description 

This massive piece of rock lies flatly at the bottom of the drainage on the western flank. Several years ago a group of trees fell on the boulder and I spent several days cutting and clearing the area so it would be climbable. Now most faces are dry and I'm starting to get them cleaned up for climbing. The north face still remains undeveloped but looks to host a bunch of short thin climbing on a vertical wall with tricky slopey top outs. The western side has some hard looking slightly overhanging climbs as well as a cool looking overhaning 45 wall. The South and East sides don't really look to have any climbing.

I wouldn't try to climb at this one if the bugs are out or if its really wet or has rained a lot recently.

Getting There 

Walk south from the King boulder. Located just below a pile of large fallen trees on the west side, practically in the stream.

Around the middle of the west face of the boulder, just right of the overhang, is a diagonal crack with a great left hand undercling. Just over the lip is a slight sloper for your right hand. Using some good jugs and some slopey holds, climb straight up the dish shaped face and up the moss to the top....[more]   Browse More Classics in Connecticut
