Description 

Bald Rock Peak consists of two levels of outcroppings on it's east side and a plethora of slabs on it's west, created back when glaciers covered this area and split the the peak in a classic ramp and pluck formation. The peak has two levels of outcroppings on the East side and hosts numerous lines and projects. The left end of the lower wall needs some cleaning but appears to have great potential for some real hard climbing. At the base of the lower outcropping is a boulder field with many lines, both established and un-established, on various qualities of rock. The rock up here is sharper then the rest of the rock in the area.

Start on the overhanging face, utilizing a good in cut crimper and a right handed sidepull/jug/pinch. Fire up to the wavey horizontal jug, then up to another decent hold before the lip. Traverse right on good holds past the peak and mantle. Trick is to not touch the tree (even on first move) ...[more]   Browse More Classics in CT
