Description 

This is a collection of rock here.

The Pinnacle Wall is a small, 20-25 foot tall crag that faces southwest. It has a decent tree above for a toprope anchor. It lies in the north group of crags and is the southernmost of these crags. Long slings are useful here.

L->R:

A. Overeasy, 4
B. Powerfool, 5
C. Fool, 5
C2. No Fare, 4
D. Nonstop, 4
E. Inbound, 5
F. Outbound, 5

The pinnacle and Eliminator Roof have a small set problems that are probably no more than 15 feet tall. This is a tiny area with a neat roof problem. While these are short rocks, a toprope is advisable until you have these wired, especially the Eliminator Roof.

Hillside Arete V2 5+  MA : Hammond Pond : ... : Pinnacle Area
Sit start at bottom of overhanging arete on slopers. Move up on slopers and pinches to reach jugs near top. Do an easy topout at the high point of the boulder. If you use the chossy rocks under pedestal of boulder for footholds, it's probably closer to V0-V1. This has really fun moves and js fairly long (about 11 moves) for the Hammond Pond area boulders....[more]   Browse More Classics in MA
