Somewhere along the ridgeline north of Route 2, a glacial erratic sits in a deciduous grove. It’s pretty spectacular, given that it’s all alone out there, a chunk of pristine granite parked a bit above its schistose host stratum:
If you’re a climber/boulderer, there’s plenty to do there to justify the 20 minute approach. I expect half of the possibilities to crack the double digits, which will mean nothing to most of you, but everything to those who “boulder.”
This is the ideal time of year to go there; no bugs, the sodden approach is stiff as a mackerel, and no bugs.
Did I already say that? Well, yeah.
