Bald Rock is a peak/rock outcropping in the Danbury, CT area. The peak and adjacent basin to the north are loaded with large gneiss boulders and outcroppings. The bedrock on the property is composed of Brookfield Diorite Gneiss, Walloomsmac Schist, and Stockbridge Marble. All of the climbing is on the gniess which is infused with feldspar mega-crystals and contains schist and marble intrusions. The property is public land with legal access and parking. It also happens to be the largest legal bouldering area in the state.
