Description 

About 10 to 20 foot tall Gneiss wall. It is shady and mossy and has lots of ice in the winter. It starts off not very tall and by the end is highball or rope climbing.

Getting There 

Park in the pullout off of route 80 that people use for the main climbing walls. Instead of walking over route 80 follow the main trail in for less than a minute and take the blue blaze trail on the left. Follow that for about 10 to 12 minutes and you will be able to see Foster pond through the trees. You will come up to a steep downhill followed by a steep uphill. Before you go uphill turn left and follow in the valley about 20 yards and the boulder is on the left.

Crown of Thorns V3 6A  CT : CT Bouldering : Foster Pond Area
This is the first climb on this wall. Stand start and make moves up to the ledge. Get both hands in good on the left and a high heel hook. Swing around the ledge for the top out. This climb is very commiting at the end, but very fun....[more]   Browse More Classics in CT
