Continuing north from bald rock you will notice a large drainage basin drops down to the west from the powerlines. From bald rock all the way along edge of the ridge to the bottom of the basin are outcroppings and boulders.

Getting There 

Hike North from the Bald Rock.

This is a great climb, a classic maybe... Starting low on the overhanging arete using the small sloper/crimp on the arete and the small corner of the flake on the face pull on and throw out right to the pinch on the corner. Make a challenging throw/slap with your left hand up the top of the arete to an okay sloper. Climb/campus along the arete on buttery smooth slopers to a decent jug at the top of the arete. Mantle straight up....[more]   Browse More Classics in CT
