This is another cluster of boulders and broken cliff band about 200 yards across power lines from trash compactor. Below the boulders is a big pond housing a beaver lodge that is protected habitat, so if you bring the pup, please be a responsible owner so as not to disrupt the beavers or to upset anyone that might be trying to enjoy the wildlife. Also, for the same reasons, go easy with tick marks please, since the boulders are right off the trail and tons of chalk might ruin someone else's time out there.

Getting There 

From trash compactor, walk back across power lines and into the woods about 100 yards or so and the cliff band and boulders should be obvious slightly down and to your right.

Start kneeling under the prow with left hand on an okay sloper and right on opposite side of prow on a three fingerish-sized, decent crimp. Place your feet anywhere and pull on. Go straight up and climb the prow on good holds....[more]   Browse More Classics in MA
