My brother and I found this area through local knowledge, which claims that there are some good bouldering problems and top-ropes here. We went with low expectations, but found a nice, medium-short crag with excellent fine schist or maybe granite, and we decided to start leading on it. We got shut down by I Want My Mommy and I Want My Mommy Direct (see photos), which have difficult and poorly protected crux moves (10+/11), but found Mother's Day quite enjoyable!
In general, this area is underdeveloped. With a little more traffic and some clean up, quite a few more rocks up there could have some decent trad lines and definitely some bouldering problems, but most of the stuff here is wicked mossy, and even covered in ferns. My guess is that it's not worth the effort, and will not expand from the presently established lines and problems. Definitely worth checking out if you happen to be in the area, but don't travel from too far.
In the photos, I've put up lines that I'm certain will be good TRs or even good trad leads, but we didn't get the chance to climb them, so I haven't described them. Go get that crack!
Also, we've named and graded stuff that's surely been climbed before (I guess it's possible nobody has lead it...?). If you are familiar with canonical names and grades, please let me know, and I'll be happy to change them.

I haven't been there but I located it on maps:
Is there any more potential here or is this the extent of the area?

|There is some potential, but it's undeveloped. Would take a lot of wire brushing. I see some short leads and maybe a bunch of boulder problems.|
