This is another small crag east of Pusherman Wall. It too is quite close to the temple. It lies quite close to the street as well. This crag is quite tiny, perhaps only 12 feet tall. It can make for decent bouldering. Beware of the landings. There was a nasty landing below Reefer Madness.

This feels slightly easier than Reefer Madness.The holds tend to be more positive than on Reefer Madness but may be loose. Tread carefully....[more]   Browse More Classics in Massachusetts
