Description 

Within a small but beautiful Trustees of Reservations park called Agassiz Rock are two separate rocks of interest. Known simplistically as Little and Big Agassiz rocks, they are easily found on the loop trail.


Getting There 

From northbound Route 128 take exit 15 Manchester and turn left on School St. In half a mile or so, you will see a prominent gravel turnoff on the right with even more additional parking available on the left side of the street. This parking area will be marked with a Trustees park sign saying Agassiz Rock. Take the approach trail, and, after a short while, take one fork or the other for Little or Big Agassiz Rocks.

This area is perhaps 5 miles west of Gloucester.

The other main boulder at the top of the Little Agassiz area. The V2 Face Problem starts on the jug on the lower left and follows the chalk to a slopey top out. The Right Arete is easier then it looks in this photo.

Start low on a large jug and move up the right-facing edges/flakes until gaining a slopey pinch and topping out. The crux is moving off of the pinch. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in MA
