The narrow end of a recently found boulder showing the 15 foot tall prow. It is like a big blade stuck in the ground. Fall to the right and you're OK, to the left and waa!..off a drop off. I think this boulder is just over the line into DEM land so kosher, but I need to confirm. It is a bit of a bushwhack to get to.

If the
Audubon Society map is accurate, then this and an overhanging ledge south of it look to be close but safely in DEM land.

I checked out the cliff band near here awhile back. It is on Audubon land according to this more detailed map. However, it is so far in the woods that you would never be noticed.

The Audubon ranger patrols pretty aggressively and does know where all the cliffs are. You might get lucky and get away with it, but I really don't recommend climbing on the Audubon land, especially with ropes, which would make it more likely you would get caught. The cliffs are short and not that great anyway unless they were open and were cleaned up. So for roped climbing, you would be much better off going over the CT border to High Ledge or something. If I was going to do some slightly shady bouldering, I would go elsewhere, but I don't think it should be encouraged here on MP.

I agree. Like I said I checked it out and it is not worth it to climb here. I was just trying to correct the claim that it is on DEM land. Where is "Highrocks"? I've never heard of it.

Sorry, I meant High Ledge, the one in Pachaug. Rocks in the brain! What I meant by "overhanging ledge" in the first post is just a little bouldering ledge, not the cliffs inside Audubon land. I think it is aboute 30 feet to the west of the Audubon border runing down from Ell Pond to Stubtown trail
