This is a totally-obscure, North-facing, chunk of rock that is probably not worth the effort of climbing. Some idgit obscurists (edit, of which I am one) will seek it out, since it is referenced in various climbing sources. Its location makes it probably less-than-perfectly wise to be climbing here. I’m not sure of the rock type, but it seemed less than ideal conglomerate? The climbing starts right off the sidewalk and goes up perhaps 40 feet. Nonetheless, here it is. It is not recommended.

I'd the list of folks who have actually climbed this rock is pretty Nobel laureates for sure.

Getting There 

This lies near Northeastern University in Roxbury. From Huntington Ave, go East on Tremont St. Where Tremont St goes North, continue East on New Dudley St. It lies across from the Madison Park High School.

I'm not gonna lie, Leo... you sound mad. Are you mad?

I agree that this area doesn't warrant a MountainProject entry. You'd probably be better off walking down the street and putzing around behind the "new" Stop & Shop in Kevin Fitzgerald Park.

Here's a street view image of beautiful Mt. Madison.

Warrants an entry? Boulderers enter in every little pebble in the country, so by their standards this IS a mountain. Put some bolts on it, and you'll have people lining up to climb it. :-)
