Description:

Nira Rock is an urban climbers "hidden gem." Small and relatively undiscovered and surprisingly beautiful it offers some great climbing right in Jamaica Plain, and is accessible from the Green and Orange lines. It's a small site with two short (40') but challenging trails, both offering toproping and eyebolt anchors, stiff grades (mostly vertical), and a solid puddingstone face with a mix of textures. There are also bouldering opportunities. Perfect for a climb when you don't feel like hauling out to Quincy. There's also a small orchard where you are welcome to sample the apples, pears, plums, cherries, raspberries and blueberries, and a hilltop meadow perfect for a picnic. Free and open to the public, and managed by neighbors ("Friends of Nira Rock.") You can learn more and get great directions at their site nirarock.org.
