Description 

The main slabs located directly above the town baseball fields. This area hosts the majority of routes in West Rock. Many of the lines here are sport however there are several gear and mixed protection (gear and bolts) routes as well. Several of these routes REQUIRE 70M ropes and several routes are multi-pitch routes.

Getting There 

Hike up the well worn trail behind the dugout. Follow the trail up and right behind some apartment buildings. Take the second left trail which cuts back left directly beneath the main slabs.
