This is one of the best areas due its overhanging nature. It has various degrees of rock quality from excellent to rough. The rock is highly featured with amazing pockets, cracks, and small crimps. This crag is on preserved Groton town land and is very compact.

The major draw back of this cliff is that is tends to stay quite damp because it is next to beautiful swamp. The cracks take about 3 days to dry out after rain in warm weather, but in the winter freezing temps help.

Getting There 

ake exit 86 off of I-95 and take 184 North. Take a right on Winding Hollow Road and drive 0.2 miles. Park on the right hand side of the road and walk 2 minutes into the woods to this very steep featured cliff.

The trail is about 100ish yards down the road( away from walmart) from the 35 mph sign. If you don't see the boulders in the first 45 seconds of hiking you went down the wrong trail
