BETA PHOTO: Children's Slab is the area within the yellow oval...
This is pretty large low angle slab in the Northeast corner of the reservation. The rock is high quality Cape Ann granite. Although a large area, the angle is so low that the climbing is barely fifth class.
This would be a great place for taking younger kids climbing for the the first time though.
Park on Bray St. at the lot near the mini-crag, and then walk in keeping to the left. The path should lead up over bridge and along a ridge that runs roughly parallel to Concord St. The large slab heads down to the right. The ridge is a pretty well-defined feature (and should be obvious) is near by.

This slab is certainly pretty low grade. Marty's dog onsight, free soloed one of the routes, but it is certainly a fun location if you are new to soloing to get your head solid. Nice clean, sunny, longgg slab.
