There is alot of potential there Andy. Just watch out...people let their dogs off leash alot there and some are not too nice. Check out Ravenswood up in Gloucester; more stuff but not as used...so bring a brush.  :)

Ravenswood is in Gloucester off route 127. There is another two spots in Gloucester one is "Red Rocks" at the intersection of 128 and 133. That is a trad/TR area. Diagonally across the street is a bouldering area called the "playground". I'de be more than happy to show you those three areas some morning.

I have a rough draft(most of it) of what was to be the cape Ann book from several years ago. Dozens of areas , all over the place. It never got published to my knowledge

Maybe some day..

John, there is a fair ammount in "Boston Rocks" but there are always new spots popping up. Bouldering is big around Cape Anne...so many "Glacial Erratics" :P

I'm building a house down in rockport now and drive 133 most days.  Stopped yesterday to checkout what must be the playground.  Looks really cool.  Easy to spend some time there if you live close.  Looks hardly touched.

yeah cape ann bouldering is very good. Thanks for the info guys.  By the way if we all eat a shit ton of food today and then climb tomorrow we'll be getting an xtra workout based on the fact we'll be a wee bit heavier. BAM!

Was in lynn woods yesterday for some bouldering.  With the mild
temps ticks are moving. Pulled two deer ticks off me and over
two dozen off the dog.  Be aware and chiggety check yourself!
