Description 

Several short steep routes under Willard, almost in the road. Cracks 5.10-5.11 and a 12+ arete(tr) .All route are tr but I guess could be lead (some have).


Location 

Just as route 302 begins to go uphill, a water pipe is on the right-tight parking. The crag is across the small stream to the left. Or park about 200 yds. back on the left


Protection 

Most are TR

This crag looks great, the overhanging ow in the middle looks badass. Burlap, any info?

These routes are down by the river down and right of the slabs on Mt. Willard---easy to miss unless the leaves are off the trees. Park where you can, jump the guardrail, and hop the river (easy except in the highest water). These little routes define gnarly---a bit of Vedauwoo dropped into New Hampshire. And yeah, there MAY be an offwidth.

Cannot believe I've driven by this spot so many times and never noticed it. I'll second the tape comment I'd cover all the skin you can ha ha. Also if you are missing something from your rack and have been here recently hit me up with what it was and I'll get it back to you.
