The Upper Ledges are likely the second tallest slab in CT next to West Rock Ridge State Park in New Haven. The Upper Ledge is basically broken down into two different sections, the Super Slab and the Trail Magic section. Super Slab contains routes from Class 3 Scramble to Arch of Delight (aka The Corner) and many many other variations. You can basically climb all over this slab without much regards for defined routes. To the left of Super Slab is the Trail Magic slab which contains the routes from Athlete's Feat to Quartz Wall. The longest routes are on the Super Slab while the more leadable routes are on the Trail Magic slab.
From the Appalachian Trail junction at River Rd., hike uphill on the white-blazed A.T. about 10 minutes. The trail will pass right along the base of the Upper Ledges.

This route climbs the crack on the left side of the upper cliff. Starts with a finger crack going through an overlap about 20 ft up. This is a really a good lead and worth doing. A blue tri cam works to protect the flaring pod like section before the thin seam part, which is the crux. You can get a micro wire somewhere in the seam before you totally commit to the thin slab move. The rest of the route is around 5.7. Good gear the whole way. Easy to set up for t.r. off trees....[more] Browse More Classics in CT
