getting FA's, or so we think...


This is a small crag within Chatfield Hollow State Park. I don't know of any climbing history here but would love to know of it if it exists!

The routes are between 30 and 40 feet in length and climb on high quality gneiss. All the routes are protected by natural gear but, because of the belly-shape of the cliff, you usually have to boulder the first section before you can place a piece, so...bring a pad. Also, bring 50-100 ft. of webbing for anchors as there are no fixed anchors. Bring your small stuff up to a #1 BD and a brush. This crag has potential for a few more FA's, but needs a little attention.

Getting There 

Drive to the main park entrance at Chatfield Hollow.

When the pond loop road is open: Drive in and park on the left next to the beach. Cross the road, walk past the picnic area in the pines up into the woods. The cliff should be visible as it is only a few hundred yards uphill.

When the pond loop road is closed: Park and walk.

Storming the Castle 5.9 5c 17 VI HVS 5a PG13  CT : Southeast : Pad Crag
This is a fun route with a crux at the bottom with a marginal piece of gear to protect you. Definitely a good idea to have a pad if you don't feel comfortable at the grade. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in CT
