Description 

This is essentially one big block with a few problems. I did these problems about 6 years ago and just revisited the place to record it. There is a lot of quartz in this rock, so it can be tough on the fingers. This is not a destination. It is in Wilmington Town Forest.

Getting There 

Park at the dirt pull-out just past the Andover/Wilmington town line.

Is this on Woburn Street? Bing shows a bunch of boulders on the northwest side of Woburn Street just into Andover...

Do you know the status of the land? If these are the same boulders I found, according to google maps, it looks like it is in the Wilmington Town Forest.

Also, assuming this boulder is actually in the Town Forest, have you done much more exploring in the Forest to try and locate other boulders?

Yes,
It is part of the Town Forest. I did look around and while there was certainly other rock there it was easy V0 or V1 type problems. This group of blocks was the best.
