The Happy Valley and The Hideaway are two bouldering areas located in close proximity to each other. The rock is slightly crumbly gneiss; however, most holds are very solid. Most problems tend to be very fingery and the best climbs are V5 or above; however, there are many climbs at lower grades. Due to their hard to find nature, the areas tend to be fairly uncrowded, especially the Happy Valley.
Park at the end of Dry Hill Road in Montague and hike in on confusing trails. The New England Bouldering guidebook offers a confusing description of how to get to both areas but it is certainly better than blindly searching in the woods. It is about 15 minutes to each area and about 10 minutes between the two.
