BETA PHOTO: The eastern end of The Nubble.


At the mouth of the Westport Harbor lies The Nubble. In the 1600s, pirates used this large granite outcropping to hide their ships from unsuspecting ships looking for a natural port.

Although most of the Nubble is class 4, there are a few steep boulders on the harbor (northern) side of the Nubble. There may be as many as 20 moderate to hard problems in the areas.

The ascent history of the boulders on this rock is unclear.
