Chapel Ledge

Church Ledge is concealed in the peaceful slopes of Ashfield, MA. Church has solid roots to the climbing history in western Mass and has advanced into one of the zone's head novice bluffs presenting some dynamite settings. The stone at Chapel is strikingly highlighted rock reminiscent of banks in the White Mountains or Yosemite. Sections command the climbing style here, however more troublesome test pieces, for example, Ken Nichols' Forget-Me-Knot (5.11+) pepper the dividers. Hope to more often than not discover individuals or gatherings here however the climbing ought not be missed. The little bouldering divider at the base may take a break too.


Sanctuary Ledge is a piece of the Chapelbrook, property possessed and overseen by The Trustees of Reservations. A parking area is situated off of Ashfield Road at the principle entrance. The left part (traveling north) is on an indistinguishable side from the ridge. Extraordinary swimming openings on the opposite side of the street help to round out a hot, moist evening. Chapelbrook is free so please help to help the Trestees.



The primary trail takes the soil street past the door to the stand. From here, timber steps and the undeniable trail advance toward the base of the precipice. A recently redesigned climber's trail ascensions to the summit embraces the precipice going by a few other well known dividers. A climbers trail remains along the base and signs up at the summit.
