Comments: Jim, yes, that is a fun line. Layback up the railing crack, and you can get a little exposure on the chopped chicken head up above... it's also one of the longer lines up there.

Comments: This block is also able to be gotten to on a good winter when the swamp it lays in freezes over.

Comments: This slab is certainly pretty low grade. Marty's dog onsight, free soloed one of the routes, but it is certainly a fun location if you are new to soloing to get your head solid. Nice clean, sunny, longgg slab.


Location: MA : Cape Ann : Stage Fort Park

Comments: This crag is probably your best bet for dry conditions after a rain on Cape Ann. It offers some great slab lines, a couple crack lines, and a nice boulder. Also this is a short crag directly behind the Stage Fort crag, along with a very nice crack line on the shore the needs to get cleaned out. The "bolts" on top are not for climbing, currently gear anchors are recommended for TR.

Comments: Two twos and two threes seem good on the lower half and a 0.5 for the crux. Nice light rack for a very fun lead.

Comments: Jim, no it does not go all the way to the black streak. It follows up the slab about 6 feet parallel and left of the Zipper. Look for a tiny peanut about 10 feet off the ground, and then pretty much go straight up.

Comments: Mop Grip Quarry might be good. Most of the quarries in Gloucester should be warm(isher), but right now I think your gonna be fighting the ice that's starting to come in. Bouldering this time of year is generally a safe bet though.

Comments: There are many other problems in the Little Agassiz area which are yet to be listed. Easily upwards of a dozen to maybe a dozen and a half of problems in the beautiful little area.

Comments: I was working this the other day, and when I arrived the start he below the crack had a crack in it was popped off with a touch. Although after reading the beta listed it seems that everyone starts on the crack anyways... Certainly doesn't seem to effect the grade

Comments: This is one of my favorite spot in the area for lead. The lines arent to long, but they are fun, interesting, and well protected, with a variety of grades from easy to intensely stiff.

Comments: You can also park at the end of forest lane and get in the center of the blocks if you're just out bouldering.
