Getting There 

From the parking area, go north on a jeep trail. Go right at the 1st fork. Go right at the 2nd fork. Go right at the 3rd fork. Look to the right/east. It will be the northern/further of the 2 crags here.

Per Tim McGivern: you can also just park at the end of Goodyear Ave in Melrose and walk in. You'll see it after about 1 minute of hiking the white blazed cascade trail.

The rope is the route.

Quick Step 5.8 5b 16 VI- 15 HVS 4c  MA : Black and White Rocks : Rock 6 aka Crag 6
The crux is the first 15 feet. Decent holds and tricky feet will get you up to a break at around 17 or so feet up. From there, it is glorious, 5.4 bucketfest going up an fairly exposed position for the Fells. Going right to the arete at 15 feet will take you off route....[more]   Browse More Classics in MA
