Description 

Scattered throughout the woods of these towns are numerous high quality Gneiss boulders, the only problem is that the majority of them are on private property. However, there are still a hand full of great lines and beautiful places to climb. I've spend two years searching for boulders during my free time, but am sure to have missed many, so please contribute to this page if you can!

Getting There 

Located in southern CT, near the mouth of the CT River, I95 and Rt. 9 both offer direct access to these towns.
