Description 

HUGE traprock boulder with multiple climbable faces one of which is very overhung and about 18 feet high. This rock has multiple established routes ranging from V0-V6(ish?). There are also much harder projects waiting for FA's.

Getting There 

Follow the blue trail off of Park Lane for a quarter mile then crest a hill on the right. Frankenrock is about another quarter mile over the crest of the hill. It is right off of the trail and very hard to miss.

Hi all, I climbed a problem today on the Frankenrock boulder (in the Woodbridge Land trust) and wanted to post here before adding it as a new climb. (It seemed like a wonderful, obvious line -- so perhaps someone has climbed it before?) The problem starts on Tree Hugger, climbing directly to the good, obvious jug, and then powers left to the large, flat sidepull in the middle of the steep face. The problem then finishes directly up the center of the face. (Finishing, essentially, with a long dynamic move from the sidepull to the top.)

If I'm reading the notes on Mountain Project correctly, this climbs the second half of the open project through the middle of the face. In terms of difficulty, I thought this sequence checks in at around V5/6 (although the problem suits me very well and might be a little harder). It felt about the same as Frankenstein's Lab, but in a completely different style. (I'm new to CT bouldering -- just moved to the area for law school this year.) Thanks!

Hi all, I climbed a line just to the right of Frankenstein's Lab today -- a stand start from small positive crimps moving up and right through the steepest part of the overhang. (It connects with the large sidepull that provides the finish for Vice Lane.) Sort of a squeezed line, but very nice and fun climbing -- perhaps around V6.

The sit start should work and will add a grade or two.
