West Peak is a large traprock ridge stretching for 3 miles from rt 364 to I-691. The ridge offers great surrounding views and is one of the largest documented climbing areas in the state however, it appears the majority of it is CHOSS.

If anyone would like info on this crag shoot me and email ( will likely be climbing here this weekend & Bradley Firewall.
I worked at the Summer camp for years. There are some outstanding lines here if you are not afraid of an approach.
I assure you there are worthwhile leads here.
Route beta can be found in Ken Nichols "Hooked on Traprock".
