Comments: Quote: "Could you get away with leading this on a set of nuts and Camalots from sizes 0.3 to 2?"

Absolutely. It was one of my first leads, I am not especially brave, and I only had a few cams.

Get on it!

Comments: Please Note: Public access has been lost to this area.

The pull-off on Concord St. mentioned in the area description above is now clearly posted with a "No Trespassing" sign and should be avoided. Though the cliff itself is part of the the Great Ledges property of the Essex County Greenbelt Association, it is completely encircled by private land and the access granted to the ECGA does not extend to the public.

A real shame.

Comments: Really nice block. It sits alone on the top of a hill that sits at the borders the Concord Street, Mt. Jacob, and the Calvary Areas.

The face just left of Full Moon (behind the tree) has a cool VFH crimping project up the tallest part of the boulder on incredible rock.

Comments: I think this is near Swamp 4 boulders. There is one really nice looking boulder 100 or so feet from here and a few more boulders and walls worth exploring on this side of the pond.

Comments: Pete and I had a go at this recently. Pete climbed the arete at V5 (Charging Rhino) using the pistol grip hold that is just on the right face. The still unclimbed project uses the arete and left face and is harder and very height dependent. If you are 6' 4", might be pretty straightforward.

Fun problem. If anyone does it, let me know.

Comments: I bumped this up a star and downgraded it a little now that it is gotten cleaner. Short but really sweet friction climbing. One of my favorite pure friction routes in the Redrock area. Unlike many other slab climbs in the area, there are really very few actual features. Just you, your shoes, and the very blank rock.

Comments: Noticed some chalk on this that may be recent. Like anything in Redrock area it was likely bouldered long ago, but if it anyone wants the FA or has a better name let me know.

Comments: There are some boulder problems on one corner, but the rest of the block suffers from a mixture of bad landings, poor angles, and height. Are there TR anchors on top? Anyone know what the climb up the prow goes at? Looks HARD.

I am not generally a fan of sport routes in Redrock -- because I don't think it complements the style in a lot of cases -- but the two climbs on the tall face of this boulder are crying out for clip-ups. The one on climber's left looks like a fun moderate, the one on... more >>

Comments: Forgot how fun the problems on this boulder are. Really great intro bouldering. They feel full value. Toping-out is really smooth as there are big jugs at the top and over the lip.

Comments: This evening I found a skateboard deck that had been removed from the boardwalk and tossed in the woods. I grabbed so it wouldn't be taken. If anyone knows who installed the bridges and boardwalk, please let me know as I would love to return it. Otherwise I will reattach it when I get a chance.

The old bridge was falling down so I am very grateful for the new one even though I have heard there is a sad story behind it.

Note: I cross posted this on regional forums.

Comments: BE ADVISED: As of 9/13 there is an emergency police ban on parking on New Way Lane, so alternate access must be found for both Mt. Ann and Dyke's Pond.

The best way I have found seems to be to park in the large dirt lot just south of 128 (near Redrock parking lot), cross the on-ramp, and head down into the woods, but there is a large swamp down there you want to avoid. If you head past the signs and then head down in a SW direction, you will cross a small stream and then after 200 hundred fe... more >>

Comments: Where is this area exactly? Is it above Upper Cliff or left of lower slabs? It's not up the Dome area is it?

Comments: BE ADVISED: There is currently (9/8/13) an emergency police order banning parking along New Way Lane. This is likely to prevent swimming in Dyke's Pond and hopefully won't last too long now that the summer is over.

If you want to get in here, find alternate parking and keep a low profile.
