This is a nice granite block hidden out in the woods off one of the trails leading up to the stone tower. Not too many lines here, but the ones there are of high quality. There is also an open project currently on this boulder. It is the sit start to Hidden Arete.
From the main parking area, take the wide trail (Great Woods Road) for about 5 minutes until you get to the top of the first hill. When here take a smaller rocky trail off to your left and follow that until you get to the first intersection. At this point stay right and keep walking uphill. Follow this trail eventually passing the Queens Row Boulders, Slant Right Boulder, and the Pedestal Boulder which will all be on your right. When the trail bends right and uphill again keep going strait onto a new, feshly-cut single track trail. Follow this trail for a minute over some rocks and you will come to the Hidden Boulder.

The stand start goes at V5. ...[more] Browse More Classics in MA
