About Hammond Pond:
|Hammond Pond (MDC Reservation) is home some decent bouldering and fun toproping. The bouldering is highlighted by the steep, fingery routes in the alcove. The toproping is most popular at the main face by the pond. Bring super-long slings or extra rope for anchors. Trad gear is helpful too for anchors on some of the climbs. The approaches are short, the season is spring to late fall.|
