Very secluded location, Typically Shady. It's granite with an excellent Arete. The Routes range from 5.9a-5.11c and plenty of room to expand.

Getting There 

20 West to West Granby Road then onto Broad Hill Road. Follow Broad Hill Road until it turns to dirt. Park in the first large parking lot on left. Then walk back across the road straight into the woods. The Diamond Ledges are less than 200 feet.

East facing crag, lots of signs from the Granby land trust telling climbers to NOT mess with the rock in any way.

I haven't been in a couple months, but last I was there there were signs saying to not damage the rock. Apparently someone (non-climber) was up there harvesting quartz crystals. As far as I know, the Granby Land Trust is still accepting of climbers.

That being said, lets continue this good relationship with the GLT and the neighbors. Clean up after yourselves, keep quiet, and drive slow on Broad Hill Road. A few times now someone left carpet scraps up there to use to protect their rope or the trees, or something. That's nice and all, but pack it out with you, so myself or someone else doesn't have to. Same goes for tape.
