To the north of Bald Rock the basin drops down to the west. The saddle is the area extending north from Bald Rock along the rim of the basin. From the Bald Rock Boulders head north through the woods (almost parallel to powerlines). After a small scree field you will see a large boulder at the bottom of the ridge. Continuing to traverse north along the saddle and above the band you will find another boulder. There are some more slab and easier climbs here as well.

Getting There 

Hike north through the woods from Bald Rock. At the northern end of the small ridge formed by Bald Rock you will find a lone split boulder. From here you can traverse the lip of the basin and find more boulders until you reach the main field.

On the lower end of Split rock is a great finger crack. Sit start (a bit awkward) and follow the crack up and right. Pull a fun mantle up over the rounded sloping lip. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in CT
