Points of Interest

1. Parking

There are no fees to park here. Head off on the trial to the quarry in the center of the parking lot.

2. The Fortress

Walls Q, R, S. R & S walls are easier but on Q it can get up to a 5.12 difficulty.

3. P & O Walls

Some good bouldering at these smaller climbs.

4. M & N Walls

Here you can find some fun overhangs and alot of different variations. It's also a good 2nd choice when the Tower of Power gets overcrowded.

5. Tower of Power - Ships Prow

This is the most pronounced feature of the climbing area. Here you can top rope and there are a variety of routes of varying difficulty. I've also included some photos here from the top of the Tower of Power. From the top you'll have great views towards Boston.

6. H and I Wall

H and I are the backside of G wall which is the tallest wall in the area. To get to H and I you have to walk through a wet area.

7. A through G Walls

You'll have to skirt around the water to climb all the varying routes in this area.
