The ideal setting of Parks Pond Bluff has long been a favorite for local climbers. ALthough more scruffy then its neighboring crags, it offers a bit more adventure and the best summit scenery by far. Today, many climbers are introduced on the slabby main face. Just left of this face, is the steep mushroom wall, home to some harder testpices.
From the intersection of routes 180 and route 9, follow 9 east for 2.7 miles, passing parks pond on your right to a small grassy pullout on your right. Two trails leave from the pullout. one branches left leading to the top of the cliff, while the right one leads you to the base of the crag. Leave five minutes for the approach.
