Probably the longest slab climb in CT. On the far right side of the slab. The start is to the right of two medium-sized trees growing next to each other about 20 feet up. A horizontal crack runs about 15 feet off the deck. Choose the line that appeals to you. You can make it as hard or easy as you like.
Warnings: 1) The climb is well over 100 ft long so a 60m rope is too short for a toprope or rappel. Knot your ends!
2) Recommend top rope only since there is very little pro up high. Definite groundfall potential.

Definitely a fun slab although I haven't led it. Pick your line up it and if I remember correctly going straight up the center-left is the most devoid of features and most difficult. The only really decent gear you could get is in a long horizontal crack about 15 feet off the deck.
Unlike the description says you can TR it with a 60m rope although you should extend your anchor as far as you can to make sure the rope reaches the ground. Belaying from up top is an option if you don't want to risk running out of rope. Either way, knot your ends for sure.
