Description 

This area lies further along the dirt road on top of the embankment perhaps 200 yards from Wampatuck Rd. Head NE along one of the faint trails. It lies in the midst of relatively dense forest and can be hard to spot. On the right side of the crag is a distinctive feature called the Elementary School Roof. This crag seems quite short.

Featured Route For The Playground
Flying Circus buttress.

Flying Circus 5.9+ 5c 17 VI E1 5a  MA : Rattlesnake Rocks : The Playground
This is on the left face of the buttress. Do a thin start of 5.7-ish face climbing with decent holds. Come under the awkward roof that tries to push you out (keep slack on top rope or risk being pulled off the wall). Reach for a key hold above the roof, and move up in the crack above. It feels more exposed than the height suggests. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in MA
