Description 

Bald Rock is a peak/rock outcropping in South Western CT. The majority of the climbing in this area is bouldering however, there are some routes to be had in the basin as well. Located at the northern end of the property (not Bald Rock proper) is a craggy peak with several cliffs and overhangs. There are 3 distinct cliffs which all have their own character to them.


Getting There 

Hike into the basin towards the peak along the north end. The three cliffs are along the southern flank. See
