Description

To the right of a gap in the cliff with a view of the Boston skyline, O Wall rises out of the ground culminating in a 15 foot arête with good holds. To the right of O Wall, the cliff shortens abruptly to a few feet and forms the boundary between Granite Railway Quarry and Swingle's Quarry.

Access issues inherited from Boston

Many of the popular climbing areas in the Boston area lie in protected state parks and urban wildlife areas. Some are even conserved by special interest groups dedicated to preserving the history of climbing in the area. In and around the city, there are many walls and boulders that lie on semi-private and questionable land. Use your best judgement and follow your guides.

Crimpy, exposed face climb with some handy jugs up top and the thick trunk of a tree to use to top out if you don't trust the sloped mantle. Be careful of the painted footholds, they aren't much but it's something.

Climb the highest point on the arête on the right face. Good warm-up for P Wall.

Run up the wall and grab the jug to the right of the letter M graffiti. From there it's a straightforward mantle. Bring a pad!

Lots of partial and full hand jams lead up to an awkward mantle using the buttress to the right. Watch your feet, much of the face has been painted and is slippery.
