Directions:  Hike up the hill to the right of the last house in that area. It is the one with all the weird junk. DO NOT park in the driveway, tho it is usually plowed. If you park with your car on the road you WILL be towed. Park at the Gazebo a bit further north on West Side Road.
Description: This is really an area, not a single climb. There are numerous flows, runnels and pillars in the woods all over the area between this and Black Pudding, none really named. The right side is a great place to take a small group as top ropes can be easily set up either by climbing the large flow or walking around on the right.
    Pitch 1: climb something to the top

Gear: standard ice rack
Descent: rappel the route or walk off right
History:  WInter  - Tod Swain did a lot of climbs in this area as have a lot of other climbers over the years.
