This crag makes it offical, that the Redrocks conservation area contains a little bit of everything. This beautiful wall is about 200+ feet long; only about 15 to 30 feet high, most of the wall is overhanging with some amazing lines. There are a handful of very low grade tradable lines, but most of the lines are in the 5.10 and up region.
This crag faces south to Route 128 and will be dry by mid-day if the sun is out after a rain. This is also the only south-facing crag in the Redrocks area.
A. Kimchi, 10, 1p, 15', bolts or TR.
B. The Rusty Nail, A1-, 1p, 20', gear & bolts.
C. Dangles Crack, 10+, 1p, 20', gear or TR.
You can either follow the trail from the north end of main wall down through the swamp past some nice but uncleaned slabs until you hear the highway. Or, you can walk up over the top on main wall to a trail on the south end of the summit. The connecting trail is under development.
In the Redrock and vicinity area, there are a number of small crags. To facilitate the user finding these, they have been left in the hierarchy they were submitted which splits them into the general Massachusetts and North Shore / Cape Ann sections.

This is an awesome, little, balancy line. Start on the flake, and move up and along until it runs out. Reach out for the first hold to the left, then lay your right foot out to the right to balance out. Hold the form for the next two moves to top out....[more] Browse More Classics in MA
