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.

Reefer Madness V3 6A  Massachusetts : Hammond Pond : ... : Temple Overhangs
This is the obvious sit start on a big flake, straight up the face into the crack. From here, work your way directly over the roof via small positive holds, then to the bomber lip. I've seen it listed as V1, but even from the stand start, it feels solid. This is an excellent problem, it is worth a visit if you frequent the Alcove and want to try something new....[more]   Browse More Classics in Massachusetts
